Deleting from CVS repository

Subject: Deleting from CVS repository
Date: Tue, 3 Feb 2004 11:53:20 -0600

Hello all,

I may be posting this question to the wrong list, just thought I'd give it a
shot in case anyone knew??

We have Eclipse/WSAD clients accessing our CVS server on AIX. When you
delete projects/files from Eclipse, files seem to goto the Attic folder on
the actual repository, but projects still remain there after deletion, only
get deleted from the local developer's workspace. Do they have to be
manually removed from the CVS server? Is there no way to permanently delete
projects through a CVS client?

Also, when you delete from the filesystem itself, is it preferred to do like
a cvs delete command or an OS command like rm -rf will suffice to ensure the
project and its associated files have been completely removed? 

Also, are they any config changes that can be made on the client/server side
to enable permanent deletion of projects/files through the cvs client? Can
you retreive Attic files through the client?

Thanks for any help provided!
