How to remove tag from a deleted file?


Let’s say you deleted a file from CVS. Next day you see that you need to remove tag(s). Usually you click on file, select “Tags” and remove it. But how could you remove a tag from a deleted file?


You should execute a cvs command. Some CVS clients have GUI, for example TortoiseCVS (you should click right mouse button, select TortoiseCVS and select a “Command” option). In terminal you should execute command:

cvs tag -d tag_which_you_want_to_remove filename


P. S. If you execute it from GUI – then for some clients you should delete a “cvs” keyword from command. It should look like:


tag -d tag_which_you_want_to_remove filename
