DragonFly bugs List (threaded) for 2004-09
Re: DragonFly ISO release build failure
:Maybe for the next time, we should cvs rm the files and then leave them
:around for a couple of days/weeks so that cvs up'ing will remove these
:files/directories, before completely removing these files from Attic.
:Or is cvs already intelligent enough to remove files once in repo that
:don't exist anymore?
As long as the directory structure stays intact in the CVS repository,
cvs is smart enough to remove the files from people's local cvs
checkouts when they update. If people are using the correct cvs
options in their .cvsrc files (i.e. at least update -Pd and checkout -P)
then the empty directories will also be properly removed.
I did make a backup of the repository before removing the files, but
I don't think cvs rm'ing old third party contrib code works with the
new contrib abstraction we are using, it would cause the repository to
bloat too much.
