I'm removing files in the /start/ directory, but can't remove anything in:


My guess is that there's something going on with the capitalization.  For instance, in my local copy of the files the directory is capitalized, but through bonsai, MXR and the web site the directory is not capitalized.  Compare:

And this is the error I'm getting when I tried to remove the files:

davids-macbook-pro:Troubleshooting david$ rm index.html 
davids-macbook-pro:Troubleshooting david$ cvs rm index.html
cvs remove: scheduling `index.html' for removal
cvs remove: use 'cvs commit' to remove this file permanently
davids-macbook-pro:Troubleshooting david$ cvs ci -m "Archiving old Mozilla Suite start content" index.html
cvs commit: Up-to-date check failed for `index.html'
cvs [commit aborted]: correct above errors first!

I've done a CVS update several times and that isn't fixing this.

I ran into another problem with removing files from CVS -- this time from the mailnews directory.  I could cvs rm them, but got an error on commit.  I'm not sure if this is the same sort of problem as mentioned above or not.

cvs commit: file `review-mail.html' had a conflict and has not been modified
cvs commit: file `review.html' had a conflict and has not been modified

I was able to remove these files from Subversion and I don't imagine there's any need to worry about the files in CVS at this point.  Closing as fixed.
