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.
