Re: Delete or Revert cvs import Command

There is no command to remove a module. The only chance is to remove all
files in the module. Then call cvs update with the option -P to delete the
empty module in your working directory. In fact the modul is not removed in
the repository but moved in an "attic" directory. So you always have an
access to older revisions of the removed files. That's important e.g. if
they are tagged.

If you want to remove a module with all its tags and branches resp. the
import branch you have to delete this module in the repository on the server

Note: The command import is made to import and administrate third party
sources not to create a new repository. Use the add command to do this. The
best way is to write a recursive script which calls cvs add in your whole
directory tree.
