CVS Import Reminder

CVS–Concurrent Versions System – Starting a project with CVS

I keep forgetting commands I rarely use. So here’s my favorite CVS forgetter:

cvs import -m "Imported sources" yoyodyne/rdir yoyo start

Call this in the directory where your project IS. For example: cd projects/myproject. ‘start’ is just a release tag, ‘yoyo’ is the vendor tag and yoyodyne/rdir is the directory where your project is stored in the cvs.

Only delete the original source after an import, if you are sure the import worked!!!!!
