But this tends to be forgotten and a large number of intermediate unusable binaries (exe file for instance) get committed. THis in turn leads to the RCS file growing to a very large size on the server, which then leads to the slowing down of cvs operations on that module. If you consider that, an admin command that simply cuts away a number of non-useful intermediate binaries is really handy to reduce the RCS file size. HTH /Bo (Bo Berglund, developer in Sweden)
