>Look at "cvs remove".
Sorry, I must have my "stupid" bit set today (didn't sleep enough last
night). Do you mean that I'm supposed to cvs remove the file? AFAIK,
when I do a "cvs update" that should remove all files that are no
longer pertinent. Guido (or somebody else with CVS write access) does
the "cvs remove" and "cvs commit", and then when I do my next
"cvs update" my local copy of the file should be removed. At least
that's the way it works with all the other projects I track via CVS.
And of course if I try to "cvs remove newimp.py", I get:
cvs [server aborted]: "remove" requires write access to the repository
as I would expect.
Or are you simply telling me that if I read the documentation on the
"cvs remove" command, the scales will fall from my eyes? I've read
it, and it doesn't help :-(
Sorry for bugging everybody with my stupid CVS questions. But I do
really think that something is screwy with the CVS repository. And
I've never seen *any* documentation which suggests that you need to
manually edit the CVS/Entries file, which was Fred Drake's suggested
fix last time I reported such a problem with CVS.
Oh well, if this only affects me, then I guess the burden of proof is
on me. Meanwhile I guess I just have to remember that I can't really
trust CVS to delete obsolete files.
