You are right that is not how it works. I would *really* advice that
you read up on the bare basics of CVS before you start using it. THe
CVS repository does not even hold regular files, it is a database of
sorts and all files are so called RCS files which each hold the
complete revision history of the file that you put under source
Not a single user should *ever* access the CVS repository directly,
you should *always* go via cvs commands.
