I've done some reading in the manual and the news archive, but was 
unable to find answers to my 2 questions... Can anyone provide info?

* When one checks out a full repository (ie, co -P .) a CVS folder is created
at the module level.
* When one checks out a single module, no CVS folder is created at the _module_
* After one has checked out all of the modules (say, one by one), the results
of this activity are not the same as checking out the repository all at once
(you are missing the CVS folder using this method).

Why is a CVS folder created at the module level when checking out the entire
repository, but not when checking out a single module? Shouldn't the CVS folder
either be there for both cases or absent from both cases?


Is the "import" command the only way to create a module?

Thank you for any assistance.
