2.4.1 Editing administrative files

You edit the administrative files in the same way that you would edit any other module. Use `cvs checkout CVSROOT' to get a working copy, edit it, and commit your changes in the normal way.

It is possible to commit an erroneous administrative file. You can often fix the error and check in a new revision, but sometimes a particularly bad error in the administrative file makes it impossible to commit new revisions. If and when this happens, you can correct the problem by temporarily copying a corrected administrative file directly into the $CVSROOT/CVSROOT repository directory, then committing the same correction via a checkout of the `CVSROOT' module. It is important that the correction also be made via the checked out copy, or the next checkout and commit to the <code>CVSROOT</code> module will overwrite the correction that was copied directly into the repository, possibly breaking things in such a way as to prevent commits again.
