Is it possible the repository to be touched carefully for file/directory renaming purpose? I read somewhere that the human readable form of the cvs repository is an advantage over subversion. What will happen if we simply rearrange the repository (the folders and ,v files there) and checkout again?

That will work, but you will never be able to re-create a snapshot of the system prior to the move.

You mean because the things are in different folders now - which means that a script 15 versions ago knew that another script is in certain folder, but the folders are now different and because cvs does not have memory that we changed the folder structure - it can not apply that correction upon snapshot?

If that's the case, there is no problem.

If we need the history of the individual files - it will not be affected, right?
