I am new to WinCVS. 
I have installed WinCVS 1.3 with CVS NT.

My repository is in local machine.

I have 2 modules module1 and module2.

The modules tab in the left side of the GUI doesn't display this.
It's displaying everything  with C:\ except c:\cvs.

Also, if i checkout the module , i am not able to see the files 
in the right side area. Only folders and non CVS files are visible.
Any help will be great.

Hi all,

I setup a CVS server (version 1.10.6) a while back, and I now have the need
to share some files between projects.
The files are test data that does not change between projects, so I do not
want to duplicate it in the repository.
Previously, I used VSS' sharing mechanism to accomplish this. Although it
doesn't seem to be documented much
anywhere, from my searches on the web, I have found references to symbolic
links being supported in CVS version
version 1.10 and above. I ran some small experiments with symbolic links,
and they seem to share the files like I want.
However, I'm wondering if anyone on this list has more experience in this
area and can point out any pitfalls with using
them. Also, if using symbolic links is too "dangerous," is there a better
and reasonably easy way to accomplish file
sharing in CVS.

Thanks in advance,

-- Jason
