 How can I set up CVS to checkout source directories

Remove them (with cvs rm).  They'll still be in the repository, just in
the Attic subdirectory with the latest revision marked "dead", so their
revision history will still be available.

On a related note, I keep running into a problem managing third party sources. Sometimes we will get a drop of a source tree and some of the files have been deleted i.e. they are not present in the import (any more). When I import and then update a workspace, the missing files are not removed.

Is there any way to make this happen automatically. I can see that it is a thorny problem in the general case, but it also seems that for this common case there might be something if only I could find it...
