by Jeff Hunter, Sr. Database Administrator
This article describes the steps necessary to remove a project from the CVS repository. For the purpose of this article, the project we will want to remove is ProjectX and the directory location for the repository is /var/lib/cvsroot.
Deleting a project from the CVS repository is nothing more than deleting its directory structure from within the repository. Here is a short list of the steps:
% cd /var/lib/cvsroot % ls -l total 4 drwxrwsr-x 3 cvs cvsdev 1024 Jan 23 19:30 CVSROOT/ drwxrwsr-x 2 oracle cvsdev 512 Jan 24 19:38 ProjectX/ % rm -rf ProjectX
