/home |- one `- two
In other words, the CVS repository is rooted at /home/cvs/common. All the source files are in /home/cvs/common/one and /home/cvs/common/two and the administrative files are in /home/cvs/common/CVSROOT. Our objective is to split this one repository into two, as follows:
/home | `- one | `- two `- two
In the new setup, the first CVS repository is at /home/cvs/one and the second CVS repository is at /home/cvs/two. Each has its own subdirectory for content and for administrative files.
The first step is to create the new directories and copy in the appropriate files.
mkdir /home/cvs/one mv /home/cvs/common/one /home/cvs/one mkdir /home/cvs/one/CVSROOT cp /home/cvs/common/CVSROOT/* /home/cvs/one/CVSROOT mkdir /home/cvs/two mv /home/cvs/common/two /home/cvs/two mv /home/cvs/common/CVSROOT /home/cvs/two rmdir /home/cvs/common
Notice that the content files for each project were moved into their appropriate CVS repository but that the administrative files were copied into both of the new repositories. The next step is to modify the CVSROOT/history files in each of the new repositories so that they only contain information about the files in their respective repositories.
cd /home/cvs/one/CVSROOT mv history history.orig grep 'one/' history.orig >history cd /home/cvs/two/CVSROOT mv history history.orig grep 'two/' history.orig >history
We're done. Now each project is in its own CVS repository. Now you can create a separate CVSTrac database for each project.
