Apparently, the cvs import command is actually implemented to store 3rd party sources in a repository, much like a storage box, without any development aimed at. Therefore it also needs to create the branch you are asked to name etc. So I guess the cvs original developers never thought this way about source control, they probably just started from scratch with an empty module and added files one-by-one. /Bo -----Original Message----- From: Greg Ennis [mailto:greg at ennis.net] Sent: den 5 februari 2003 15:03 To: CVS-NT Mailing list (E-mail) Subject: Re: [cvsnt] Can't add some directories to source control You are both right... Tortoise version 1.3.1 ("unstable") does indeed add the directory properly, so it was simply because it was a root folder. And thanks Bo for the clarification on WinCVS, although I dont understand why it makes you follow all those steps simply to "Add to Source Control"... Would you ever want to import, but not local checkout? Why not combine them like Tortoise, or at least make it an option?

This is true, but the "Make New Module" command in TortoiseCVS does additional magic to checkout the files again in-place. >I can't add some folders (i.e. "C:\Inetpub") to source control.

Which version of TortoiseCVS are you using? Older versions could not handle a folder under CVS in the root of a drive.
