BTW talking about keeping a checked out copy.
Why wouldn't you use the export instead of the update command for this purpose?

 ^cyclic-pages (date; cat; (sleep 2; cd /u/www/local-docs; cvs -q
 > update -d) &) >> $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/updatelog 2>&1

export creates a new copy of the entire directory structure of a module.
update changes only the files in an existing directory that have been modified.

You could use export, but you would have to fool around with directory names.

If the module is very large, then update is probably the better choice.
