<pre>Can jCVS change the name of a file being managed ?
If yes, can the revision history be kept.

If jCVS cannot do this, is this a viable work-around.
-rename the file(s) leaving the suffix the same in where ever it appears in
the main repository
-have the users update their local repositories to pick up this file
-have the users remove the old file from their repositories
-have the users clean everything up with jCVS,

Thank You
George

<pre>George,

This is not a 'jCVS Question', but a general CVS question.
The simple answer to your question is "no", CVS does not
"rename" files.

To accomplish this, you must "remove" the original file using
CVS, then "add" the new file. The old file will be moved into the
CVS "Attic". This is essential, because old tagged releases
may require the original file with its original name.

Now, on the other hand, if there is no need for the "historical"
name of the file in question, you could just rename the ",v"
file in the CVS repository. This will muck up the history of
course.
