Our project ("sieglinde") has a source tree with several subdirectories.
One of them is called testing, it contains:

The problem: when I do a (fresh) checkout with a date specification, like

cvs co -D "23 September 2004 8pm" sieglinde
cvs co -D NOW

then I do not get the ./testing/scripts/out directory. This directory was
added one week ago to the repository. When I cd to the /testing/scripts/
directory then I do get the out/ directory with

cvs update -d

But since the directory was already in CVS at 23 September 2004 8pm,
I think it should already have been included in the initial checkout.
Our users think so too, I would like to know if this is indeed a bug or
that we are somehow misunderstanding the functionality of CVS.

Our CVS repository is in pub.amanda.wisc.edu:/net/local/cvsroot but I do
not know if it supports anonymous checkouts.
if it does:
mkdir tmp1
mkdir tmp2
cd tmp1
cvs -d $CVSROOT co -D "23 September 2004 8pm" sieglinde
ls sieglinde/testing/scripts/out
cd ../tmp2
cvs -d $CVSROOT co sieglinde
