need to revert accidental checkin to target directory

bwestrich
I did the mistake of checking a few files in a "target" directory into
CVS (see hudson/hudson/plugins/perforce/target).  (arg!!!)   Now this
directory exists on the repository and the .cvsignore file doesn't
ignore it.

After my public flogging (:-o is finished, is there someone I can
contact to ask that these entries be deleted from the cvs repository?

AFAICT even Kohsuke does not have physical access to the repo.  Just
cvs remove it and it will remain in the Attic forever.

And don't do that again :-p

(Some of us have made worse commit mistakes BTW) ;-)

I'm hoping Stephen's note constitutes my public flogging.  If so, it
was milder than I feared.  :-)

Seriously, the only drag about not being able to get rid of these
files is that now everytime a build generates files in that directory,
CVS will see them as uncommitted changes, and the maven release plugin
will (rightly) complain about these and prevent a release from being
done until I clear the files. I guess my punishment is ongoing, too
bad it also affects anyone else working on the Perforce plugin (sorry
about that Mike Wille!) .....

unless you add a .cvsignore for *.* to the target directory

I don't have the physical access nor the shell access, but I do have
karma to make permanent file deletions. So I deleted the target dir.
