(This entry was imported from the savannah tracker, original location: https://savannah.nongnu.org/bugs/index.php?8560) The RCS `state' field holds needed information for cvs. In particular, the field's value is "dead" when the revision in question is dead -- i.e., has been "cvs rm"d and then committed. Currently this shows up because deleted files will reappear when checking out an imported repository.
