You don't need to do anything to the server, other than move the files
around. Unless you want to make sure nobody tries to check anything in or
out while you're working, in which case you could either shut down the
server, or create empty CVSROOT/readers and CVSROOT/writers files.

The only state that will be affected is the state in the user's
CVS/Repository file. That's why the users must delete their local copies and
check them out afresh after the move is complete. If they don't, then CVS
will look in the CVS/Repository file, and see the original project/a
directory - which doesn't exist any more.
