> Hi,
> We have been running with CVS for a couple of years now! 
> Unfortunately our repository has grown over time, to the point where 
> we have modules, directories and versions of files that are no longer 
> needed. 
> I have been trying to delete these by using admin -o :HEAD from the 
> root of directories/modules that I want to delete, unfortunately cvs 
> comes back with "cvs [server aborted]: attempt to delete all 
> revisions".
> Selectively deleting versions, or seperate files using this method 
> will become tiresome.... Is it possible to just go into the 
> repository and delete the file/module without any ill 
> effects/integrity issues in the repository? (rm -rf * is looks very 
> tempting :-)
> Any help would be appreciated.
> Thanks
