It would always help to spell my name correctly ;) (Elzubeir with an 'e'
not an 'a') In any case, I say "Do NOT touch CVS directly" which is
something you cannot do (unless you had shell access on arabeyes' cvs
server). My request still stands. However, removing files, etc. should
be do-able for you remotely using the same methods Nadim has outlined

Heheh.. you truely are one of a kind ;) Don't take things too seriously.
CVS does not belong to me, it belongs to the world ;) However,
maintaining the Arabeyes CVS repository is my responsibility and it
makes my job a lot easier if people don't mess with it. Kind of like if
you have a desk organized in a certain way and someone changes things
around cause they wanted to clean it. However, the gnome/ module is
yours and you are free to do whatever you deem necessary for the GNOME
