bk abort(7.3.3)              BitKeeper User’s Manual             bk abort(7.3.3)



NAME
       bk abort − abort a failed pull or push

SYNOPSIS
       bk abort [−f] [repository_root]

DESCRIPTION
       The abort command can be used to clean up a failed update of a repository
       so that you can try the update again.  Updates sometimes fail, leaving
       the PENDING and RESYNC directories behind.  Since the existence of the
       RESYNC directory acts as a global repository lock, you probably don’t
       want to leave it there for an extended period of time.

       If the update (i.e., a bk pull or bk push) failed and there has been no
       manual resolve work done yet, there is no harm in aborting and trying
       again.  If manual resolution has been done, it may be worth the effort to
       figure out what went wrong and try to fix it.

OPTIONS
       −f  Do not prompt for confirmation, just do it.

FILES
       PENDING This directory, found at the root of your repository, is used to
               hold incoming data while it is transferred.
       RESYNC  This directory, found at the root of your repository, is used to
               hold copies of your revision control files while they are being
               merged.

BUGS
       Abort should go look to see if you have done any merging and refuse to
       abort without −f if you have.
