#90242 CVS repository clean-up: kxmame


Dear Sir/Madam,

I recently registered and created a project with
SourceForge called "kxmame". I tried to import my files
from a local directory to the SourceForge "kxmame" CVS
repository. Unfortunately, due to my inexperience with
CVS, I accidentally call the "cvs import" command from
the parent directory of "kxmame" instead of from the
actual "kxmame" directory itself. This uploads many
unneccasary files to the SourceForge kxmame CVS.

I would like to delete all the current files from SF
kxmame cvs repository and reset and re-import the
correct kxmame directory. Could you kindly help me
with this ?

Thank you very much,
