I think you misunderstand. commit, tag, log, and others operate relative to
your sandbox, not the repository. You need to specify a file or directory in
your sandbox on the local machine, and CVS will perform the action requested
against the related repository object. If you had first checked out the module
Sputnik as a sandbox, and tried to operate on that, everything would work as

The rtag, rlog, rannotate, rdiff and rls commands operate on the repository
directly, and do not require you to have a sandbox checked out. The other cvs
operations work against a sandbox, and you specify the location to the portion
of the sandbox you want to operate on, not the portion of the repository you
want to act on.
