What does 'nothing known about XXXX' mean?

      Hi all, 

  Just to explain: my question is really:

  "What does 'nothing known about XXX' mean when it's perfectly clearly
listed in the CVS/Entries file" ?

  For example:

address@hidden /repository/users> cvs update mjm
cvs server: nothing known about mjm
address@hidden /repository/users> cat CVS/Entries
address@hidden /repository/users>

  Just as a side point, I find the error messages from CVS to often be
completely inscrutable, and the info page doesn't list very many of them;
does anyone know of a good reference that explains what these mysterious
statements actually mean - other than the actual source code?

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
