We go through the steps for a simple case, then discuss the additional steps that may be required in more complex situations. Some sample auxiliary files are provided at the end.
This chapter describes the processes of adding, updating, deleting and "cloning" product instances or components on a product distribution system. Information on creating tar files, using Fermilab CVS repositories and announcing products is also provided.
