Re: Remove user as watcher/editor completely

I think you've pretty much listed all your options, however, note that
modifying the CVS/fileattr files can be automated making it not-so-tedious.


A developer has left our company. I deleted his account and all that.
But he is still mentioned hundreds' of times as editor and/or watcher of
files in our CVS repository. Is there a way to remove all hist wathes
and all his "cvs edit" commands with just a single command?

The "cvs watch remove" command has no option to remove all watches of a
certain user.

Note that I cannot login as the user since I already deleted his
account (unless I recreate it).

The only solution I have so far is to manually edit the CVS/fileattr
files in every directory. It is a tedious task...

Any hints are welcome!
