Hi there,

is there a flag in cvs that allows to keep only the latest version of
a file in the repository?

This would be useful for product files that can be rebuilt from
sources, but only with additional manual effort. These files need not
to be versioned, and should not due to their binary nature. However it
would be nice to have them in the repository, as they might be
necessary for the remaining build process.

M$'s VSS (which I am forced to use in some projects) has this "keep
only latest version" flag when adding files. With VSS being crap in
most parts, I think there must be such a feature in CVS if even VSS
has it. I just did not find it yet.
