A.15.1: 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.

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 Adding files) will be silently deleted---even if it is non-empty!
