Sure. Just issue a 'cvs update -d' command. That will retrieve any new files
and directories.

I was wondering if there was a way to do that without retrieving any

As a side note, though: don't be poking around the Entries file. There is
rarely, if ever, any need to examine the contents of the file. Always use
the cvs command interface to determine what's out of date.

I agree.  We got ourselves into a weird state where I'd like to be able
to have Entries reflect what can be updated so I can start at the root
and selectively update pieces.  In its current state it thinks there are
only two subdirectories.  But I think doing 'cvs -n update -d' will also
give us a good starting point.
