I assume I have to change the CVSROOT on the client..? :-) Sorry, I will try to explain better. Say you currently have a cvs repository in d:\a\very\long\nested\path If you set the repository prefix to "d:\a\very\long\nested" then the client only needs to specify "\path" as the CVSROOT. If you create additional repositories on this machine, they must also live under "d:\a\very\long\nested" --- e.g. "d:\a\very\long\nested\secondrepository" will have client-side CVSROOT \secondrepository
