Re: Question about convenient and automated committing

Sorry, but this answer does not help me at all. I now try to ask a very direct question, so that it is maybe easier to understand it and to reply to exactly this:
1. I want to commint ANY changes inside a folder (yes, they do exist in the IT world since very long times), which means subfolders, files and so on. Any changes means any modifications, including deletions of files and folders inside this folder. Now I am looking for a CVS command which conveniently commits all the changes inside that folder. CVS does not know anything of folders? Nevertheless I ask for a solution how to commit every change in this folder, any change in all files and subfolders. Does it work with CVS, yes or no, and if yes, how?
I hope that was clear to understand. Sorry, but I really cannot understand what you have written to me, so I ask again and try to describe my question from all angles, so that I am not misunderstood.

Yes it does, just not in the way you expect.

That's because there's no such thing as a deleted folder in CVS. CVS
only manages files, it does not manage directories (folders). It simply
uses directories to organize the files that it is managing. There is a
-P flag to checkout and update that deletes empty directories from
working directories to avoid clutter -- you may want to add them to your
~/.cvsrc file(s).
