I think you are mistaken. Previously, you would do
% cvs -z9 -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs/binutils co binutils
And you'd get a tree that looked like this:
Now, you do the above command and you'll get
If you compare the contents (which I have about half a dozen times now :-),
there is no difference except the name of the top level directory.
When you do the "checkout binutils", the "binutils" is a cvs module.
Previously it was a plain directory. The change was necessary to have
a single repository where we had several packages that go together,
yet can be worked on checked out separately so you don't need to check
out all of gdb (it's huge) just to get the sources to objcopy.
