Best regards,

    Hi Josef,

    > from CVS repository?

    Yes, but only on the CVS server side, not from NWDS / Eclipse client side.

    > And what about deleting specific files?

    Here the same holds. You can delete files locally and commit this deletion, so the files are marked as deleted, but they are not deleted (it's just that another one wouldn't get this file anymore if he updates).

    Hope it helps

    • Hi Josef,

      I only administer cvsnt, so I can explain it for Linux only very roughly... Deleting projects under a repository as well es single files should be done by just deleting the dir tree / the file.

      For deleting a repository first you have to "delete" it via CVS Service Control Panel (so delete the connection between CVS and a certain dir as repository so far) and aftwerwards delete the dir tree on the file system.

      For CVS stores the version info within the file ("*.ext,v"), deleting this deletes also the version info.

      Hope it helps
