Ahhhh, that one. I remember. I have no "good, sound advice" on this matter. However, I have some less-than-sound suggestions (Always use caution, backup your entire repository before you proceed, etc. etc.): You can remove almost all knowledge of a file by deleting it from the repository. The RCS file in the repository has a ",v" appended to the name. There will still be history entries, but I don't believe that will hurt anything. Note that this falls under the category of "hacking the repository", but there is no recommended way I know of to change capitalization of a file. Since you're hacking anyway and will be backing everything up and testing anyway--you MIGHT try removing all copies of that file your sandboxes and renaming the file directly on the server, then updating again. I haven't heard of anyone trying this, but intuitively it makes sense based on the little I know of the inner-workings of CVSNT (is that enough caution I've impressed in this paragraph?). If this works, then you can keep all the old history but I don't know if the capitalization is kept anywhere else (take a peek in the RCS file itself and the files in CVSROOT, for example).

I removed the old file (editticket.cfm) from the repos but I still get this msg (below) when trying to add the file with the new name (editTicket.cfm). Would someone help me out here, we just start using CVS in my company and no one knows why we can't add/commit this file to the repos. These are the steps that I am issuing: cvs update editTicket.cfm ***** CVS exited normally with code 0 ***** A editTicket.cfm cvs commit -m "new file" editTicket.cfm ***** CVS exited normally with code 1 ***** cvs [server aborted]: received abort signal Assertion failed: key ! What does letter "A" indicate?

You can "cvs rm filename" to remove it from the repository, it is tossed in the "attic" and history maintained in case you need to grab a previous version of your repository. Hope that helps.
