;-) Would anyone know if these were "hand moved" to Attic? For instance, I *can't* seem to get non-dead files into Attic, no matter what I try with my cvs (on debian). But I haven't gone through the last 8 years of CVS's CVS logs to see if they fixed a bug in the cvs server code that would allow a non-dead HEAD rcs to be in the Attic... > The question is if it'd be acceptable to manually remove that last commit > from the repository.

Well, I've "hand fixed" this in my conversion process so my git conversion should not have this problem... I'm not a fan of mucking around by hand in CVS. It's only because of the short comings of CVS that it's necessary to every resort to that. So I don't think re-adding/deleting it is worth it... I've updated the repo.or.cz/PostgreSQL.git again - and this time it should be pretty good. Consider it "usable" to clone off and follow CVS development with... I won't re-convert the whole thing again, and will just provide daily updates to it now. Unless anybody finds issues with it... Ignore the "public" branch in there - that got in in an errant push, and I don't know how to remove branches on repo.or.cz. I'm now just putting "conversion notes" up in the public branch... IT's *not* a PostgreSQL branch. a. -- Aidan Van Dyk Create like a god, [EMAIL PROTECTED] command like a king, http://www.highrise.ca/ work like a slave.
