Checkout the module using a standard checkout command, and elsewhere
checkout the specific revision you want, then copy the "old version"
over the "latest" and commit - it'll generate a new and that
way you do not lose any of your history.

cvs -d :pserver:localhost:/usr/repo co -d work hello
cvs -d :pserver:localhost:/usr/repo co -r -d temp hello
cp temp/hello.c work/hello.c
cd work
cvs commit

Subject: Removing revisions

Hi all-
I have a question about removing revisions; I might have found the 
answer but wanted to get some other opinions to make sure I'm trying the

right thing as I'm not a CVS expert...

I have a branch for a customer that we've been developing an engineering

version of our software for.  Things were going ok until they said they 
don't want some of the latest features that had recently been put in.

That was fine; a few revisions back (e.g. for a particular 
module; current revsion on the server is had pretty much what 
they wanted, so I did some mods to that revision and have the desired 
end product.

The problem is that now I want that locally modified revision to be 
committed, and in fact no longer need/want any of the changes done for 
the current committed revision (  So basically I want the 
locally modified to become, with none of the additions

of - merged (or to delete, and make the 
locally modified the new  I hope that makes sense...

Can someone tell me the best way to go about this?  I have read that the

admin command may do what I want, but I want to make sure I can't do an 
update of some sort before trying (the multiple revision update doesn't 
quite seem what I want, but maybe I'm not understanding it correctly).

Thanks for any guidance
