Hi all

i have setup cvs server, all my repositories are accessed by cvs client
software called tortise cvs
using ext: . all the users have commit option. to commit to their databases.
Is it possible if any user checkout anymodule from repositaries and removes
the file locally and commits , it should not get  removed from the
repository. ie if he checksout the module again, the file should appear


From here it looks like either your user has a misunderstanding of the difference between CVS and his operating system, or you need to do something like Mark was suggesting earlier this morning[1].

if it is the misunderstanding of the difference between CVS and his operating system, you need to explain that: a) `del filename` removes the file from his sandbox only, so that she does not see it. b) `cvs remove filename` is for explicitly removing the file from future versions checked out of the repository. c) `cvs release -d directoryname` is for deleting a directory from her sandbox, so that he does not see it.

if it is that you don't want any of your developers being allowed to remove files from the repository, then you should probably explore Mark & xiangbin's setup with cvs_acls [1].


pronoun pain induced for fun.
