Hello all,  I am in process of re-organizing our current repository
and in process, few of the modules will be re-parented. For example
current top level module "foo" may become second level module under
"bar" as "bar/foo". This is good so far, but it also is about to break
our current capabilities. Let me explain the scenario by example.

Say, currently, we have "foo" and "submodule" as as below:


we have certain automated capability, which depends on this layout and
performs check out as below:

cvs co -d submodule foo/submodule

Re-parenting "foo" to "bar"


certainly breaks our current capability.

I have tried fixing it by manipulate modules file by defining alias
such as

foo -a bar/foo

but this does not solve problem, when I check out the submodule with
following command:

cvs co -d submodule foo/submodule

It checks out foo, not submodule.

Defining regular module as below

Foo bar/foo also did not help.

Is there a way to fix this? I appreciate your help.
