Excerpt of `info cvs' command:

     admin options
     -------------
     [...]
     `-oRANGE'
          Deletes ("outdates") the revisions given by RANGE.

          Note that this command can be quite dangerous unless you know
          _exactly_ what you are doing (for example see the warnings below
          about how the REV1:REV2 syntax is confusing).

          If you are short on disc this option might help you. But think
          twice before using it--there is no way short of restoring the
          latest backup to undo this command! If you delete different
          revisions than you planned, either due to carelessness or (heaven
          forbid) a CVS bug, there is no opportunity to correct the error
          before the revisions are deleted. It probably would be a good
          idea to experiment on a copy of the repository first.
     [...]

Cheers,

Mihai
