Hello to all!

I'm experiencing some *very* odd behavior when a user attempted to remove a file from a repository and would appreciate some help. User removed a file correctly using cvs rm filename, but when he committed the file, he received a permissions error.

    cvs commit: cannot rename PathToFile/util.h,v to
    PathToFile/Attic/util.h,v: Permission denied


I don't have any suggestions to add to Pierre Asselin's, but I can offer a bit of explanation of what you're seeing.

Moving dead files into the Attic directory is not a requirement for "killing" them, it is simply an optimization to help keep things a little tidier in the repository. CVS should work just fine with the dead file in the current directory.
