Re: 'Remove' and 'Commit' from/to the CVS repository

I want to have all the control for any kind of deletion/removal.
My users in the past have accidentally deleted the entire source tree in a different version control system. There are ways to recover the deleted revisions, but I insist that the developers should send me the list of files to be removed from the repository instead of they doing it. Well, they can check-in any garbage/e,pty files and I don't care as they can always make any prior version as head revision without any kind of administration task invloved.

Let me know if anyone has any ideas.

That doesn't make much sense.  Why would you allow someone to delete all
the lines in a file or replace them with nonsense, but refuse to allow
them to delete the file?

I don't think that question was very hypothetical at all. -- Calvin
