CVS: cleanup requested

Postby netwolf » 2005-01-02 10:26

As a notorious update-o-holic, I often browse CVS repositories.
So i also did with UltraVNC CVS rep., and I notived that there are quite a few subsections/trees which are completely empty.

It would be nice - especially for people (like me) who are not that familiar with the structure of the code - to just remove those empty sections so you don´t have to open a subdir just to see that it´s empty anyway, and CVS would also look more tidy :)

thanks for considering

CVS does not allow directory removal...

Cvs keep track of old codes, it allow you to download source
based on date, you can tell wincvs to download the code from
12/12/2003....

Onces we have RC19 stable, we better start a new cvs master tree "ultravnc2", this allow to put a clean tree.

Oops, yes, you're right :P
You can't actually remove dirs, just kind of remove them by moving them to 'attic', but the parent dir is still there then.

So yes, your idea with a new CVS sounds good :)

Thank you for your quick reply !

The SF staff will assist you if you really need to remove such old directories, but I agree - it would be better to open a new branch.
