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
$ cd tc $ cvs import -m "Created directory structure" yoyodyne/dir yoyo start
add to add files (and new directories)
as they appear.
Check that the permissions CVS sets on the
$CVSROOT are reasonable.
