file conflicts 'move away'

From: Kris Thielemans

I'm working on several machines on the same project. One of them is my home
machine, which does not have access to the CVS server. That means I
regularly zip (or tar) all the relevant files, work on them at home, unzip
the new files at work, and then want to synchronise the archive. This
usually works, except when e.g. I unzipped the new files on 2 'work
machines', and then synchronised the CVS archive on one of them. On the
other I then get this type of conflict:

$ cvs status VC/IO.dsp
cvs server: move away VC/IO.dsp; it is in the way
File: IO.dsp            Status: Unresolved Conflict

   Working revision:    No entry for IO.dsp
   Repository revision: 1.1

same happens with edited files (not only new ones), although I then get the
changes usually flagged as conflicts.

Of course, I totally agree with what CVS is trying to tell me and I guess
clean working practices should solve my problem (although that's maybe a bit
hard to do as I don't necessarily want to put my recent changes in the
archive yet, but want to have all machines synchronised). However, I wonder
if there's a way to force CVS to go ahead anyway whenever it gives the 'move
away' message. Now I have to delete the file by hand and then call cvs
update again. I'd rather pass a flag to cvs...

Any suggestions?
