I've never found a way to do this.  I've always gone right to the repository
and killed it there manually.

Please share if you get a better way to do this.

Subject: Permanently removing directory tree from CVS repository


Recently I have added a directory tree to my CVS repository which I don't
want to be there anymore (more specifically, it's been added erronously).

I have executed:

$ cvs remove -Rf <module>

and then:

$ cvs commit

from the right working directory.

I don't remember quite exactly what other commands I ran, but the repository
is ok (from the integrity point of view). I have not touched the repository
files directly.

The thing is, I have now (in my repository) that directory tree 'removed'
from the repository, but only at the file level. The directories remain
there! There is only the 'Attic' directory at the very end of the tree,
holding the deleted files (in the format 'filename,v').

How can I do to make a 'politically correct' removal of the whole thing? I
have no interest on keeping my 'Attic' for that directory at all, and I want
to do this through cvs commands if possible.
