3.1.3 Creating a directory tree from scratch

For a new project, the easiest thing to do is probably to create an empty directory structure, like this:

$ mkdir tc
$ mkdir tc/man
$ mkdir tc/testing

After that, you use the import command to create the corresponding (empty) directory structure inside the repository:

$ cd tc
$ cvs import -m "Created directory structure" yoyodyne/dir yoyo start

This will add yoyodyne/dir as a directory under $CVSROOT.

Use checkout to get the new project. Then, use add to add files (and new directories) as needed.

$ cd ..
$ cvs co yoyodyne/dir

Check that the permissions CVS sets on the directories inside $CVSROOT are reasonable.
