with names like "module1-version1", "module1-version2" and so on.  Then

I understood that I can define modules in the module file and that cvs uses
the most recent version which is alway checked out in the repository. So
this file is used by every body who uses the repository.

Consider the following:

I released Version1 with a module module1 that consists of dir1 and dir2
While developing Version2 I droped dir2 and added dir3, i.e. module1
consists now of dir1 and dir3. This is now reflected in the current version
of the module file.

Can I still check out Version1 of modul1?
