I am interested in something similar to run as part of a cron job before repository backups. I copied the script out and ran it. I received the following output:

List of Files That Don't belong in Repository:

**** File: CVSROOT/verifymsg

**** File: CVSROOT/config

**** File: CVSROOT/history

**** File: CVSROOT/.#modules

**** File: CVSROOT/.#loginfo

**** File: CVSROOT/.#rcsinfo

**** File: CVSROOT/.#editinfo

**** File: CVSROOT/.#verifymsg

**** File: CVSROOT/.#commitinfo

**** File: CVSROOT/.#taginfo

**** File: CVSROOT/.#checkoutlist

**** File: CVSROOT/.#cvswrappers

**** File: CVSROOT/.#notify

**** File: CVSROOT/.#config

But... It appears as if these files were placed in the repository by cvs init?



The script is probably out of date. IIRC, there is an array or hash in the script you can just add the list of files CVS init creates. This applies to history, verifymsg, and config. The .#* files are backups from the last time CVS tried to update files in your CVSROOT. They're there so that if you check in something that breaks CVS operation the change can be easily reversed.
