   A typical set of commands might be

     CVSROOT=/path/to/your/repository; export CVSROOT
     cvs init            # create the repository and the CVSROOT module
     cvs checkout -d top .  # checkout all of your modules

Wow.  I've never before seen '.' used in the modules slot for
checkout.  I just scoured the manual trying to find documentation on
this, but no luck.  Is this usage documented anywhere?

   You may find looking in the sources cvs-1.11.16/doc/RCSFILES of interest.

Thanks for the pointer.
