Every repository now has a name & an alias, so in some senses you could say that everything uses the prefix now.. See http://www.cvsnt.org/manual/Remote-repositories.html#Repository-Alias (OK not much.. maybe I should change it to 'mostly harmless') The prefix was/is designed to allow CVS repositories to be stored anywhere on your machine, without revealing the disk structure to the world. It also helps with Unix clients that dont like drive letters. Tony
