Dear all,

I have a corrupted cvs repo (basically CVSROOT is empty) with 3 modules in it. This configuration (although buggy) worked fine for me up to now as I am alone on the project, have a direct access to the repo (it is in my Linux home) and checkout everything under Linux. I am conscious I am in a very simple situation. Then I discrovered this cvs repo was corrupted, so I created a new repo with "cvs -d newrepo init" and began to work on a new module in this one. Howver, it is not really convenient as I cannot have two CVSROOT env variables so I need to use cvs -d to access one of the repos.

My question is, given my extremly simple situation, can I just mv the modules' directories from the old corrupted repo to the new one and everthing continues as before. My guess is yes, as the corrupted repo has really only CVSROOT(empty) and my 3 modules. Or perhaps do I have to edit some of the new repo's CVSROOT's file to make it aware I am adding a new CVS module?

Thanks in advance for any help,
