You know.. something I've noticed...

On one side there are the people who will never read the manual, but will
expect the mailing list, forums, et. al. to answer every little question
they have whether it's "I can't get my webserver to run cgi scripts" or "how
do I import a new project" or "I don't understand my algebra homework".

On the other side... the manual just plain sucks.  It's confusing, poorly
organized, badly written, and as you pointed out.. it's sorely lacking a
full list of error messages.  In short.. it needs to be rewritten very
badly.  I have a hard time being upset at someone who doesn't RTFM the cvs
manual because it's painful to read.
