Firstly, a root as '/' is known to be problematic, due to the design
of CVS.  It might work for simple uses though.

Don't send the ,v here.   That's an implementation detail that's never
passed over the protocol.

Also, why do you have two 'Directory' commands?  the first one isn't
doing anyting.  Get rid of the first one.

If you have a prefix of C:/CVS/Repository then you should never pass
that as part of the protocol.  Use / instead.

Also, you're not sending the file information - annotate uses the
sandbox and needs the entry lines for the current directory.

If all you want to do is annotate a specific file in the repository
just use the remote annotate (rannotate):

Valid-responses ok error Valid-requests Checked-in Updated Merged
Removed M E
Root /
Argument Cinema/Browser.php
