RE: Can't change ascii/binary type of file

Can a developer commit changes to a file from his workspace after it has
previously been deleted and added to attic by some other developer? Or can
he only update his workspace with the current repos meaning accept the
previous file deletion?

Well, you *could* do that, but wouldn't it just be easier to use:

cvs admin -kb <filename>

and make sure everyone refreshes their checkouts?
