It consists of one folder with administrative information concerning CVS itself (CVSROOT) and multiple folders parallel to CVSROOT where actual user files are managed. 2. Modules This is what is normally considered "projects". A module can consist of one folder with files and subfolders with files and subfolders... A module can also be defined as a collection of other folders through entries in the CVSROOT/modules file (advanced cvs). A repository is created once when the cvs server is set up and in the repository users store multiple modules (or if you will projects). The import command is used to enter a module with all its files into the repository. By virtue of its origins the import command is considered to be used for handling third party sources, not your own sources. Thus it automatically creates a branch for these sources on which to maintain them. This is often confusing to newbies. /Bo (Bo Berglund, developer in Sweden)
