Would you entertain a patch to remove or replace the following section
of the manual?  It is clearly wrong as written.


@node From scratch
@subsection Creating a directory tree from scratch

@c Also/instead should be documenting
@c $ cvs co -l .
@c $ mkdir tc
@c $ cvs add tc
@c $ cd tc
@c $ mkdir man
@c $ cvs add man
@c etc.
@c Using import to create the directories only is
@c probably a somewhat confusing concept.
For a new project, the easiest thing to do is probably
to create an empty directory structure, like this:

$ mkdir tc
$ mkdir tc/man
$ mkdir tc/testing
@end example

After that, you use the @code{import} command to create
the corresponding (empty) directory structure inside
the repository:

$ cd tc
$ cvs import -m "Created directory structure" yoyodyne/@var{dir} yoyo start
@end example

Then, use @code{add} to add files (and new directories)
as they appear.

Check that the permissions @sc{cvs} sets on the
directories inside @code{$CVSROOT} are reasonable.
