Please tell your sysadmin to reconfigure their spam filter, and their reject message - my last message was rejected, accusing me of being a "spamer" [sic]. This reply is going only to the mail list.

I wondered whether there were no performances problems working with a version wich is a branch of a branch of a branch of a branch etc.

There can be, because of the way CVS stores its deltas. To get to the tip of a branch, CVS starts with the head of the trunk, applies all deltas back to the branch point, then applies all deltas forward along the branch. If the trunk and/or branch(es) are long, then retrieving a file can be relatively expensive.
