Less drastic than actually deleting this file is to edit it and remove the watch items. Here is an example such a file from my test repository (which has seen CVSNT versions from about 2.0.51 until 2.05.03.2114) : <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <fileattr> <file name="CopyofBosse.txt"> <editor name="bosse"> <hostname>eagle2</hostname> <pathname>C:\Engineering\TEST\StingRec\FineFiles</pathname> <time>Wed Dec 12 00:06:12 2001 GMT</time> </editor> <watcher name="bosse"> <tcommit /> <tedit /> <tunedit /> </watcher> <watcher name="kalle"> <tcommit /> <tedit /> <tunedit /> </watcher> </file> <directory> <acl user="bosse"> <modified_by>AGIUSA\Bosse</modified_by> <modified_date>2006.01.17.23.10.32</modified_date> <all /> </acl> </directory> </fileattr> As you can see deleting the file will alter the ACL on the directory being controlled. But you can remove the watchers sections. /Bo (Bo Berglund, developer in Sweden)
