As a post-intallation of CVS 1.11.1p1 upgrade from 1.10 or 1.11,
I wonder if it's always safe to re-initialize the CVSROOT as follows:
Re-initialize CVSROOT to make sure all the admin files are compatible with
the latest version of CVS
login as admin or user
cvs co CVSROOT
mv CVSROOT CVSROOT.old
cvs co CVSROOT
If you have customized admin files in CVSROOT, you need do the following:
cp ../CVSROOT.old/<admin file> .
It never hurts to back up just in case, but a fresh init should simply create any admin files that aren't present.
Also I wonder if I should delete $CVSROOT/CVSROOT before issuing "cvs init"
Again, this isn't necessary. As far as I know, the worst that is going to happen without this is you might be missing a new default in CVSROOT/config or some comments in one of the files.
