How Do I Delete a Branch in CVS?


CVS (Concurrent Versions System) is a way for software developers to work on a project with multiple revisions. Each time a revision is made, the CVS system is updated. These updates can be "rolled back" (reverted to an earlier version) when something goes wrong. Multiple versions of a software project are contained on "branches." It is not recommended to delete an entire branch because it loses all the history for that branch and cannot be undone.

  • Log in to the CVS repository.

  • Type the command "cvs rtag -d -B branch module" to remove the branch. Replace "branch" with the name of the branch to be removed. Replace "module" with the name of the module.

  • Log out of the CVS repository.
