Debian GNU/Linux uses /var/lib/cvs/ as the default system
wide CVS repository. You only need to know the location of the
repository the first time you checkout a project from it. You can set
your environment variable CVSROOT to point to this
when you check out new projects. Alternatively use the -d
option to the cvs command.
Once a CVS project has been checked out there will be a subdirectory
called CVS in each newly created directory that contains the
relevant information about the repository (so you won't need the
CVSROOT environment variable or the -d option for any other cvs
commands within this project).
It may be convenient (but not necessary) to have a default CVSROOT
defined in your /home/kayon/.bashrc:
