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