The CVSROOT/modules file is really just a way to specify aliases to
files and directories you want collected. If you look at the CVS

Because CVS has no idea which module or modules may have been used for
the initial checkout.

Thanks for the reply. I understand that if the user does 'cvs update' cvs wouldn't know which modules to update. However, if the user specifies the module as in 'cvs update module' (similar to what they would have done with checkout) then the module would be known. Clearly the user could just do a 'cvs checkout module' again and get the expected result, however, so it's probably not a big issue. (In fact, that's what I advised my user to do.) Thanks again.
