I'm trying (for the first time) to track a large 3rd party distribution.
So of course I screwed it up: I unzip'ed the distribution in the working
directory itself and then imported it, which resulted in all the CVS
subdirectories being imported into the repository.  Further, I had
committed a local change to a few files (including some binary files) in
the original distribution, so the import complained about conflicts and
I followed its advice to checkout the original version of the

I want to undo all of that.  I don't want any record of the erroneous
import in the repository.  How?

Here's exactly what I did:

cd ~/public/3rdParty/java/saxon

unzip /tmp/

cvs import -ko -m "Import of Saxon-B 8.4" \
public/3rdParty/java/saxon SOURCEFORGE_DIST SAXON_B_8_4

cvs checkout -jSAXON_B_8_3 -jSAXON_B_8_4 public/3rdParty/java/saxon
