By far the easiest way to do this would be to move all these files into their own hierarchy. :-) Another option is to create a module in the CVSROOT/modules file that lists the individual files. The syntax for the modules file allows this, e.g. module_name [options] directory file ... Just tried this and found that apparently file must be a basename, i.e. cannot contain any directory components. If your files are spread over many directories you may need to create a separate module for each directory. You can then combine these again using an alias module. You also may need to use the -d option to place the files into the desired subdirectories in the workspace. Seems doable, but the first solution is much cleaner.
