I have (admittedly rare) applications for removing past (obsolete) revisions. It seems that I'm not the only one, as the "select non significant" revisions command in WinCvs seems to show: someone took the effort to implement it, and its main purpose seems to be to remove these revisions after selecting them. I'd vouch for disabling the features that are broken in the revision removal (e.g. it seems that it doesn't work well with -kB files, but I've so far been lucky with -kb files), but leave the rest. > # cvsnt --yes-this-may-destroy-everything-ive-ever-done admin etc > cvs server: ok ok ok, repository mangled and broken as requested Well, yes -- I think a command that doesn't work is not a good thing to have. But other than that, I don't think that removing revisions is something evil. It just should work... or, well, not be there. Gerhard
