me = cvs moron

I want to move the users_guide and the htdocs out of the tree that
people get when they say

  > cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@...158...:/cvsroot/matplotlib login

  > cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@...158...:/cvsroot/matplotlib co matplotlib

because these directories are huge, with lots of image data for the
users guide and web pages: 21MB for htdocs and 37MB for the users
guide, and 99.9% of the world's sane population are not interested in
these directories.

If I move them to the root (by root, I mean the same directory in
which the matplotlib directory resides along with CVSROOT at
http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/matplotlib/), by submitting a sf
site request, then people could get them by doing, for example

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@...158...:/cvsroot/matplotlib
co mpl_htdocs

Is this correct? What is the proper way to refer to the directory in
which both matplotlib and CVSROOT reside in the link above -
/cvsroot/matplotlib? I don't want to bungle the sf admin request.

John,

Everything you write concurs with my experience with CVS, including that on SourceForge. IIRC, you may be able to create a new top-level CVS directory in the /cvsroot/matplotlib repository without a support request, but it's been a long time.
