I have a bunch of projects I currently work on (Tex files, cpp files...) that I will place in a local cvsroot. I work on GNU/Linux at home and also at work. I know that it can be possible to copy the complete $CVSROOT tree on a media storage and copy it back to the new place. Is it safe to do that this way? I guess yes since I have a postgresql server running several databases on my machine, and just saving the data directory is needed to restaure it after an upgrade. I'd like to be sure that cvs doesn't do extra work on repositories.

If you are the only one who will be working on the source, then this will
work OK.

Personally, I'd rather copy the checked-out tree to the media, and move that
back and forth. Since you use the same platform at work and at home,
line-endings won't be an issue.

Thank you very much for your help. It makes sense to copy the sandbox from one machine to the other. And also to regularly backup the repository.
