A "module" is either an entry in the CVSROOT/modules file, or a directory
within the repository.



If I issue the command "cvs co cvs" I get an error:

cvs server: cannot find module `cvs' - ignored
cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot expand modules

Since your command "cvs co repos" works and since you earlier said that
CVSROOT/modules contains only comments, that means there must be a directory
/somedirectories/repos/repos, which probably has symlinks to proj1 and
proj2, but not to proj3. Do you have login access to your server to look at
what's actually there?
