cvs-switchroot -- change repository or tag in a cvs working copy SYNOPSIS
cvs-switchroot [-T] newroot [file ...] cvs-switchroot [-T] - srcpath [file ...] DESCRIPTION
The cvs-switchroot utility manipulates a CVS working copy directly, modifying the information stored in the administrative subdirectory and saving space by hardlinking if possible. If the -T option is given, the sticky tag is operated on, otherwise, the repository path (CVSROOT). The information (Tag or Root) is set to the same as in srcpath if the first non-option argument newroot is a sole dash ('-'), the literal value newroot otherwise. EXAMPLES
Change all Root information in the current sandbox to /cvs: $ cvs-switchroot /cvs . Set all roots in the current working directory and all its subdirectories to the Root of the parent directory: $ cvs-switchroot - .. . Hardlink the Tag information in the current working directory, for example /usr/src, and /usr/ports with each other: $ cvs-switchroot -T - . . /usr/ports SEE ALSO
cvs(1) HISTORY
cvs-switchroot has existed in the MirBSD source tree since 2005. It was added to Debian's cvs package in 2011. CAVEATS
cvs-switchroot depends on mksh. BSD

rancid-cvs - initialize CVS or Subversion and rancid group files and directories SYNOPSIS
rancid-cvs [-V] [group [group ...]] DESCRIPTION
rancid-cvs creates the directories and router.db(5) for each rancid group and handles the revision control system (CVS or Subversion) set- up. It must be run after installation and whenever a rancid group is added. rancid-cvs reads rancid.conf(5) to configure itself, then proceeds with the initialization. First of the CVS or Subversion repository, if necessary, and then for each of the rancid groups listed on the command-line or those in the variable LIST_OF_GROUPS from rancid.conf(5), if the argument is omitted. Running rancid-cvs for groups which already exist will not cause problems. If the group's directory already exists, the import into the revision control system will be skipped, and if it's router.db(5) already exists, it will not be altered. The command-line options are as follows: -V Prints package name and version strings. The best method for adding groups is add the group name to LIST_OF_GROUPS in rancid.conf(5), then run rancid-cvs. Do not create the directories manually, allow rancid-cvs to do it. SEE ALSO
