NAME

       rancid-cvs  -  initialize  CVS or Subversion and rancid group files and
       directories

SYNOPSIS

       rancid-cvs [-V] [group [group ...]]

DESCRIPTION

       rancid-cvs creates the directories and  router.db(5)  for  each  rancid
       group  and handles the revision control system (CVS or Subversion) set-
       up.  It must be run after installation and whenever a rancid  group  is
       added.

       rancid-cvs reads rancid.conf(5) to configure itself, then proceeds with
       the initialization.  First of the  CVS  or  Subversion  repository,  if
       necessary,  and  then  for  each  of  the  rancid  groups listed on the
       command-line   or   those   in   the   variable   LIST_OF_GROUPS   from
       rancid.conf(5), if the argument is omitted.

       Running  rancid-cvs  for  groups  which  already  exist  will not cause
       problems.  If the group's directory already exists, the import into the
       revision  control  system  will  be  skipped,  and if it's router.db(5)
       already exists, it will not be altered.

       The command-line options are as follows:

       -V     Prints package name and version strings.

       The  best  method  for  adding  groups  is  add  the  group   name   to
       LIST_OF_GROUPS  in  rancid.conf(5),  then run rancid-cvs. Do not create
       the directories manually, allow rancid-cvs to do it.
