This will be a problem for me. I'm moving Pvcs to Cvs and the developers

workaround to solve that?

Well, you could rename of the top-level directories in the repository, and then put the original names (ie, what the users want to check out) into the modules file, and use the -d option to rename them on checkout. Suppose you renamed the top-level directory 'dir1' to 'dir1.d', and defined your modules like this:

dir1 -d dir1 dir1.d
dir2 -d dir2 dir2.d
test1  -d dir1/another1_dir  dir2/other1_dir  file1  file2...
test2  -d dir1/another2_dir  dir2/other2_dir  file3  file4...
test -a dir1 test1  test2


cvs checkout dir1

would do what your users would expect, and

cvs checkout test

would check out the dir1 and dir2 sources into dir1 like you want.
