> Option 1) just go with a "cvs add"
This one has my vote. If you do a repository copy (don't do a
repository mv; it will break everyone's working directory and will
break checkouts by tag and date), not only do you have to strip off
the tags, you have to set all the old revisions dead to avoid breaking
checkout by date. And then you can't tell by looking at the log of
the new file which old revisions were *really* dead (not a big deal in
this case, perhaps).
Anyway, a "cvs add" is better in my book. It does force people to go
rooting around in a couple of different places for log information
about the file-in-abstract, but it's much cleaner from a CVS point of
view and it doesn't cause a big problem in my experience.
