I thought about the situation that you just started with your
first project in a new repository. Than you can
remove the whole repository and restart.

Do you mean with "naming conventions" the names of the files
or the name of the Tag labels? Labels can be renamed with 
a CVS command, i haven't it in my memory but I can look it up.

No, just remove the files within the repository (using rm ..)
if you have the permission to do this.

Have you taken a look into Karl Fogel's Book about CVS?
