If you use the cvs admin command it is possible to delete certain revisions from the RCS file. Say a certain file has revisions 1.1 - 1.32, then doing this: cvs admin -o1.2:1.30 filename.txt will permanently delete the revisions 1.2-1.30 inclusive thus leaving only 1.1, 1.31 and 1.32 I know it works for text files but I don't know if it also works as expected on binary files (don't know why it should not). The cvs admin command is restricted to cvs administrators though. You might set up a certain task that does this automatically of course, then you have to specify the user account to use like this: :sspi:username:userlogin at server:/repository Then you add the username (must be a valid user) to the admin file. /Bo -----Original Message----- From: Bernhard.Weichel at t-online.de [mailto:Bernhard.Weichel at t-online.de] Sent: den 12 november 2002 18:44 To: bo.berglund at telia.com Subject: Re: automatcally deleting older versions ----- Original Message ----- From: "Bo Berglund" <bo.berglund at telia.com> Newsgroups: support.cvsnt Sent: Monday, November 11, 2002 9:11 PM Subject: Re: automatcally deleting older versions > Are you updating these binary documents often?

If the rcs file is up to 100MB we expect not olny to need disk space but also main memory and network bandwidth (even if we shouldn't we use a repository on a file server in local: "protocol"). I am thinking of a strip application stripping older binaries out of the rcs file. Is this possible? Bernhard Weichel
