I am not a CVS power user and have a basic question. I use Tortoise to store 
a bunch of different embedded system products SW builds. When I have a new 
product to do I start with all the source code from a previous product and 
make the required changes to different files. Once the changes are 
compleated and tested I then have the new product build that consists of all 
the source files. Currently I have been doing this by checking out from CVS 
a previous module ( complete source code), make the changes and then create 
a new module for the new product and commit all the files into the new 
module. Is this the correct ( best way) to do this. I am not sure if 
checking out one module and never commiting anything back into that module 
is the proper way to do things.

Thanks for any advice.
