Hi all;

I'm new to CVS and I have inherited a repository left behind by another contractor

$ cvs version
Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382 (client/server)
Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11.23 (client/server)

The repository name is "DSA".

Within the repository I got a list of modules by running
$ cvs ls

There are modules for other groups beyond my own, then there is a "module" for my group called:


Within this module "BDS" the prior developer put a number of subdirectories. Each subdirectory is an independent software project.

I am wondering, what if anything I should do about this.

So far, this arrangement confused me until I figured out what he did.

I like the idea of keeping all of my groups projects under something called "BDS" since that is the name of the group. However I am wondering if projects as subdirs in a module named "BDS" is a smart thing to do.

Would it better to create a repository "BDS" instead? Is it possible or smart to create a child repository called "BDS" under the parent repository "DSA"?

I'm a newb, just trying to sort all of this out.
