# RE: How to get rid of sticky options

```Thanks.

I thought I had tried the cvs admin -kkv, but it didn't work...exactly.  I
was able to get rid of the sticky option.  But, it wasn't straight forward.
Essentially, I had to do remove the sticky option with the 'cvs admin -kkv'
command, then 'cvs update -A' to remove all sticky tag information.
Executing the 'cvs admin' command or 'cvs update' command by itself was not
sufficient.

If you are interested in the complete sequence, keep reading.  Otherwise,
stop here.

1.  Obtain status of file; verify Binary option flag is set:

% cvs status abc
cvs status abc

2.  Reset any sticky tags, dates, or '-k' options.
