Re: Loading files into CVS with a declared date

CVS has no such option, but RCS does.  The ci program, which creates a new
revision in a ",v" file, can override the system time when storing a
timestamp.  To use it, you must muck directly with the repsitory.

I have the job of transitioning a large archive from an in-house system
to CVS. I have all of the tools to do the maintenance of the repository,
but I need to load all of the historical data into my repository. I have
the time-stamps when these files were entered into my archive and the
change-log information.

Is there any way to force a commit to put a timestamp on a commit? Any
hacks to cvs to allow this? I guess what I want to do is:
cvs commit -D "1997-10-23 20:45" file, but there is no such command.
