Uh, yeah. I did not double check on the "cvs tag -d" and how it behaves with
branches before posting. Normally, it doesn't allow you to remove branch
tags. That can be forced using the -B option, but the amount of "warning"
text in the documentation leads me to think that maybe you should wait for
someone with full access to the repository. Of course, you could try it
anyway, since you probably can't screw up your module's files any worse than
they are. :-)
When you removed "the files" you really only removed revisions. The files
were still there. CVS is sort of like write-only memory. :-) Once a file
goes into it, there's no getting rid of it except to actually remove it at the
filesystem level from the repository.
