Please send e-mail to address@hidden rather than all of the other
addresses or unicasting to individual cvs developers.

You have the command below. However, you may need to be a privileged
user to create new directories. Also, we recommend you avoid NFS mount
points for repositories.

For example, a non-privileged might need to do something like this

sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/cvsroot
sudo chown $USER /usr/local/cvsroot
sudo chgrp cvs /usr/local/cvsroot
chmod ug=rwx,g+s /usr/local/cvsroot
cvs -d /usr/local/cvsroot init

The first four command would create the unix directory
/usr/local/cvsroot and make it owned by the current user and have a
group of 'cvs' (which may need to be some other group name depending on
your configuration).

The cvs init command will create and populate the CVSROOT directory.

If you are using :pserver: mode, you will now need to add the
appropriate --allow-root=/usr/local/cvsroot magic to your [x]init
configuration file.

All the above command will do is make user that
/usr/local/cvsroot/CVSROOT has all of the needed default files.

It will try to create any intermediate directories, but the OS may not
let it create the files you want depending on how permissions are set.

cvs -d /u/src/master init

will try to create the /u/src/master directory and then the
/u/src/master/CVSROOT directory and then populate the
/u/src/master/CVSROOT directory.

If you are using a CVSROOT of /u/src/master or /usr/local/cvsroot then
I do not see how Putty will let you find the server you want as it would
be attempting to use the local server.

If you are using Putty, then you are probably using

for your CVSROOT configuration.

It is recommended you use 'cvs commit' for this purposes. However, if
necessary, just move the appropriate ,v files. Warning: This is a bad
idea most of the time.
