Hi Bernd,

Thanks for your help.

Here is the info:

We are trying to check-in a binary file of size 228MB. We have its revision
1.24 on original repository and 1.1 on test repository. Test repository has
no data except the file we are trying and it is not identical to original

I can see that the repository file size on original repository is 1.9 GB,
and on test repository, it is 228MB.

But we have the /tmp space only around 1 GB. So do we need to remove any
intermediate/obsolete revisions so that we can make the
whole repository file fit into CVS virtual memory?
