Is there a way to force a rebuild of the $CVSROOT/CVSROOT

removes the taginfo file is there a way to do the equivalent of a 'cvs
update -C' in that directory to refresh it (or all of them)?

You could checkout CVSROOT somewhere, then copy the taginfo file back

Yes, that would work. I've nearly 200 repositories, and though I could write a script to do this I was hoping for a more elegant way. I also wanted to be sure to hit all the config files; I was just using taginfo as an example.
