... Yes, I searched the archives!
Here's my situation:
1) I have cvs repository for a project, and I inadvertently included a
bunch of .mod files in it (the source code is in fortran-90 and .mod
files are generated at compile-time from source code, so I don't really
need them in the repository). I frequently access the repository
remotely, and updating the .mod files takes some time.
2) I tried to use the command
cvs remove -f *.mod
to remove the .mod files from my project.
3) Next, I tried to commit my changes with
and received the message:
cvs commit: cannot commit with sticky date for file `barotropic.mod'
cvs [commit aborted]: correct above errors first!
4) Then, a status check shows:
cvs status barotropic.mod
File: no file barotropic.mod Status: Locally Removed
Working revision: -1.16 Thu Oct 28 19:52:45 2004
Repository revision: 1.16
Sticky Tag: (none)
Sticky Date: 2004.11.03.08.00.00
Sticky Options: (none)
5) Then, following the advice in the cvs documentation, I attempt to
reset the sticky flags:
cvs update -A barotropic.mod
6) Now a cvs status shows the same status for barotropic.mod, and the
cvs commit still doesn't go through.
Any help would sure be appreciated.
- sticky tags!,
