Going back to an old version of files.

Hello all,

What's the best way to get the repository in the same state it was some time

The problem I had was the following: Someone had by mistake changed a lot of
the files and committed them to the CVS repository without testing them. I
figured out that no changes were made to the repository after this commit,
so I could download a working copy of the code by using a date when checking
out. In order to restore the repository into a working state I copied the
changed files back from this checkout into my working copy of the files and
committed them.

Is there an easier way to do this?
