Has anybody scripted something to remove non required revisions from a binary using the admin command? We, and I would guess many others, have the same problem of huge binary archives we would like to cut down. By "non required revisions" I mean any revision that is not a tip and is not tagged. I have a Perl script that tries to do this but it saves entire branches and I would feel safer using or looking over something that has been around a while longer, i.e. has been tested a little more. Don't ask why we are in this situation. It's a long and internally political story... --Aric Aric Czarnowski Unimax Systems Corporation 612-204-3634 -----Original Message----- From: Bo Berglund [mailto:Bo.Berglund at system3r.se] Subject: RE: [cvsnt] RCS file become too big cvs admin -o rev1:rev2 filename This will permanently remove all revisions between rev1 and rev2 including these two.
