Hi All,

I have a user that wants to remove a directory from a module, then create 
a new directory with the same name, in essence (as he put it) "start from 

I think what I need to do is something like a combination move and remove 
procedure like this:

Get everyone out the directory and have them remove their local working 
Create an archive directory 
Move the files from the current directory to the archive directory
cvs remove current
cvs add archive
cvs commit
cvs remove archive
cvs commit

Does this procedure look correct?  Is there something you would do 
different?  Is there a way to streamline this?
