We have stuck in integrating CVS with Bugzilla. We tried some online documents i.e. CVS Zilla, which we are unable to download it.

Is there any step by step document which we can follow?

When I added a new top level directory to the repository, I accidentally created a double path, e.g. mydir/mydir instead of just mydir at the top of the repository tree. I tried to do the normal cvs delete or the directory, but since it's empty it doesn't do anything.

since I never had files in it and don't need any history or archived files from it, how can I remove it for good?

Is this a way to tag and entire repository structure without having to check it out first. We have a huge repository about 2GB of data at a remote site. Running a old version of CVS 1.11.23. Yeah I know its old, but I cant do anything about it.

Something like

We have a build system (created by other CMs before I arrived), that create a CVS tag of the head for each build before checking out and compiling etc. Needed to say after years there are many/hundreds of tags such as PROD-VER-YYYYMMDD. When we go to look for a certain version in eclipse there are so many I often get memory errors when trying to search.

Also - there are special tags created for the needed versions like general availability release versions, and the integration testing versions that are delivered to the testing team.

So i want to remove a lot of the old tags using "cvs rtag -d module". Is this OK? I have deleted a few and it seems ok.. If I keep cleaning so that many are removed will it be harmful to the history or the CVS repository. Does it take up more space via recording these changes or anything like that either?
