I'm new to CVS, but an old hand at CM.  Two questions:

1) I had a very large (1000+ files) project that I needed to get into
CVS.  I noticed that you need to tell CVS whether a file is binary or
not.  I didn't want to have to do this file by file, so I ran the
entire import with the -kb flag.  Was this ok, or are all my checkout
commits going to make full copies instead of diffs since all files
were imported with the binary flag?  Was there a better way?

2) When I did the import, I gave it an initial release tag.  Since
then I have changed many files along one of the directory trees.
Is there a way to CVS to revert that whole directory tree back to
that revision tag, or is is basically check out that revision and


It's 3:30, why aren't you at work?
I.. I didn't feel like it.
