  • i have made a big mess of my CVS repository and it's
    completely my fault. but i've bought Per Cederqvist's
    book on CVS and i now know how to use it properly
    after some practice with my local linux CVS version.

    i would appreciate it very much if you cleaned out my
    CVS repository (if possible) and gave my project a
    fresh start.

    here's my information:
    user-id=23049
    groups=100(users),3525(zztpp)
    project name=zztpp
    user name=wep

    thanks in advance for your cooperation.

  • ok, i read up on cvs and i see the problem. cvs isn't meant
    to remove files or directories from the repository, it's
    supposed to record the fact that you removed something.

    what i can do on my local system, i can't do on yours. it
    would be great if you guys rm -r'ed /cvsroot/zztpp and ran
    a new cvs init there to give me a fresh new repository.

    i promise i will use it wisely from now. honest :D

  • dtype hi,

    there's nothing of value in my cvs repository yet, so it's
    ok to remove the whole thing in /cvsroot/zztpp.

    thanks
