I was basically asking, is it ok to delete cvs/fileattr files manually to remove cvs watchers. The links you sent me, either mention upgrading to cvs 1.12 (we're running 1.11.22) or resurrecting the dead user ids to remove watchers. I created a test project and imported it into cvs repository, checked it out, set watches on it, and then logged into the server to the new project's ../cvs/ subfolder and manually deleted the fileattr file and didn't experience any weird anomalies. None of our current users have set watches and don't care. Is this a bad way of doing it?|
Another question: Is cvs a reserved word? Currently, on the new server where I'm testing and migrating our existing repository, our Linux network admin has named the repository /cvs. I'm not sure if that's a good idea.
