That implies that the cvs binary is inside your repository.  While that
isn't necessarily bad, it is unusual and could cause confusion in the
future.  I suggest you make a brand new (empty) directory for your
repository instead, say /home/cvsadmin/repos.  (And note that cvs init
will create the directory for you, you don't have to create it first.)

I, and I'm sure most other people here, know nothing about your WSAD
editor.  I suggest using normal CVS commands first until you're sure
everything is working, then worry about integrating with your editor.

I have no idea what you're trying to say here.  Again, use normal CVS
commands first; if they don't do what you expect, show us exactly what
you typed and exactly what errors you got.

That implies that your /etc/inetd entry for CVS is incorrect.  It also
implies that you're trying to do an update inside the repository, which
doesn't make any sense.

You might try reading the CVS manual, which you can find on-line at
<>, if you haven't already.
