Hmmm, indeed the branch tag is deleted but the revisions appear to still be there.

I can close the request now.

I found some old messages dealing with the same issue. The deletion
of branch tags was not ultimately recommended because only the tags
and not the related changes will be removed from the repository. But
as the RefTeX sources don't include many changes on branches I decided
to remove the branch tags anyway. I'll let you know if we get any
problems but I'm confident we won't. Thanks for your excellent
support.

I tried, it does :)

But people whose repository would have been silently trashed by an angry quitting co-developper will love you for it.

Not the worst idea since the Cederqvist is plastered with warnings at this part of the document. (c:

I haven't tried it yet, so I don't know if it works.

Thanks for the hints.

Hi,

This apparently should work, but I'd suggest asking -unavailable- first.

You can test the commands locally on a copy of the repository. Use rsync://cvs.sv.gnu.org/sources/auctex/ for this.

I didn't know one could remove branches from a Savannah repository :) Maybe we'll disable this in the future.

Thanks very much!

WebCVS now displays all the branches inherited from the Emacs repository. Is there a way to copy the files with the trunk-related history only? If there isn't, would the right way to get rid of them be to remove all the branch tags with something like `cvs tag -d -B <branch-tag>'?

Hi,

I copied the files from emacs to auctex/reftex.

The following request was sent to savannah-help-public about a week ago. There hasn't been a response, so perhaps the mail got lost. Therefore I'm trying it again via the web interface:

Hi,

the AUCTeX project is taking over maintainance of the RefTeX package.
Therefore we set up a CVS module for the files. The top-level
directory `reftex' can be found in the `auctex' repository.

Some of the files RefTeX is made up from are also maintained in the
`emacs' repository. We'd like to use files from that repository
instead of those from the distribution tarball because they are more
up-to-date and have a change history.

Could you please copy those files together with their change history
from the `emacs' repository to the `auctex' repository?

The following files should be copied from the directory
`emacs/lisp/textmodes' of the `emacs' repository to the directory
`reftex/lisp' of the `auctex' repository:

reftex-auc.el
reftex-cite.el
reftex-dcr.el
reftex-global.el
reftex-index.el
reftex-parse.el
reftex-ref.el
reftex-sel.el
reftex-toc.el
reftex-vars.el
reftex.el

In addition the file `reftex.texi' should be copied from the directory
`emacs/man' of the `emacs' repository to the directory `reftex/doc' of
the `auctex' repository.

That means the target directory and file structure should look like
this:

reftex/lisp/reftex-auc.el
reftex/lisp/reftex-cite.el
reftex/lisp/reftex-dcr.el
reftex/lisp/reftex-global.el
reftex/lisp/reftex-index.el
reftex/lisp/reftex-parse.el
reftex/lisp/reftex-ref.el
reftex/lisp/reftex-sel.el
reftex/lisp/reftex-toc.el
reftex/lisp/reftex-vars.el
reftex/lisp/reftex.el
reftex/doc/reftex.texi

The directory structure is already in place, only the files are missing.
