A.16.1 release options

The release command supports one command option:

Delete your working copy of the file if the release succeeds. If this flag is not given your files will remain in your working directory. @BF{WARNING: The release command deletes all directories and files recursively. This has the very serious side-effect that any directory that you have created inside your checked-out sources, and not added to the repository (using the add command; see section 7.1 Adding files to a directory) will be silently deleted--even if it is non-empty!}
