I'm not entirely sure I understand what you're asking. Allow me to explain a
little about the Attic, and see if that answers your question.

When you issue the 'cvs remove' command on a trunk revision of a file, CVS
moves the archive file into the Attic. This happens even if there is a
'live' revision on the branch.

Now, if you are asking how to undo the effects of a 'cvs remove' command,
then simply re-issue the 'cvs add' command, followed by a 'cvs commit'. If
you are asking how to retrieve an older version of the file, then simply use
the -r option to the 'cvs update' command.

Generally, do not be concerned about precisely where in the repository a
file is stored. I like to envision the repository as a warehouse. You and I
should not enter the warehouse, we simply ask the clerk at the counter for
specific files. As long as we get the files we expect, it doesn't matter to
you and me exactly where in the warehouse the file is stored - that's up to
the clerk to manage.
