#4796 My CVS repository seems to have disappeared



I used to have a repository for my 'terraj' project in CVS. I just got an email from someone who can't access it and when I looked I can't see it either.

Is it possible for the repository to be restored or for me to get a dump of the contents so I can load it into subversion?

    I don't actually see any record of a CVS repository associated with your project. That said though, I do see a source archive in the file release system, perhaps that will work to get a repo going with?

    Let me know if this helps.

    PS. I also note a news item on your project's web page which says you have some work to do before pushing your local repo live to our site, and no follow-up saying that it actually happened.

    Okay, I'm checking with the team to see if they can figure out more. Thanks for the additional information. I'll keep you posted.

    A dump of your CVS repository is available via the Shell service or the File management system at the path:

    Thanks. I've converted this dump file to a new Subversion repository.
