In that case you *should not* remove them from the repository because if you want to go back to an earlier revision where they were not redundant you will get an incomplete checkout! What you *should* do is to cvs remove the *files* in the folders and commit that change. This moves the files to the attic in the server and if you then update your checked out copy with the flag to prune empty directories they will be gone in your sandbox. And that is really the only thing you need, what is hidden on the server to support checkouts on older revisions is really not relevant. If someone checks out the head of your project he will not get the 'redundant' directories either, because cvs per default does not create directories on the client with no files inside. /Bo (Bo Berglund, developer in Sweden) _______________________________________________ Cvsnt mailing list Cvsnt at cvsnt.org http://www.cvsnt.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/cvsnt https://www.march-hare.com/cvspro/en.asp#downcvs
