If you used 'grersrepository/ecb' in the import, then you need to use it
in the checkout:

    cvs checkout grersrepository/ecb

Correct, but you could use

    cvs checkout grersrepository

to checkout the top-level 'grersrepository' you created via the
'cvs import' command you gave above.

or, to get everything in the repository checked out use:

    cvs checkout -d top .
    cd top

you should now see 'CVSROOT' and 'grersrepository' plus any other
modules you have in your repository.

It creates the subdirectory under the top-level grersrepository module
you specified.

> Is ecb a module, or do I consider it a new repository?

grersrepository/ecb is a 'module'

A new 'repository' is one that contains a unique $CVSROOT value and you
will have a single CVSROOT module for all valid repositories.

See above.
