The cvs "commit" operation does nothing to directories; it only works
for files.

Once a directory is added to the repository, there are no further
operations necessary to add files to, and use, that directory.

I haven't used CVS for some time. But I am not new to SCM tools.

What I did is (in CVS Linux server): 
1. Use "adminuser", I added a new directory called projects/project2 to
cvs, without run "cvs commit"
2. Use "root", I ran a "cvs update -d" to see that new project2, and
added a new file called readme.txt under project2,

Now I can't commit or update anything from both users. Below is the
error message:

address@hidden projects]$ cvs commit
cvs commit: Examining .
cvs commit: Examining project1
cvs commit: Examining project2
address@hidden projects]$ pwd
address@hidden projects]$ cvs update
cvs update: Updating .
cvs update: Updating project1
cvs update: Updating project2

address@hidden project2]# cvs commit
cvs commit: Examining .
address@hidden project2]#

How can I resolve this? And why I can add a new file under a
un-committed new directory?
