I constantly keep doing ``cvs update -PdR''. When I do this I get a bunch of
new things that I don't get when I do a ``cvs co binutils'' and I have to
fix my CVS local tree manually. Is the update command just broken or is
this intentional? I think it worked before the major restructuring of the
CVS tree a while ago.
Sadly, you must omit the -d option. I consider this to be a serious
CVS bug: it does not remember which module you checked out.
Unfortunately, the fix is quite complicated.
Another approach is to always simply do `cvs co -P binutils' from
above the src directory. This will do the same amount of work as `cvs
update -PdR' and will avoid checking out directories which are not
part of the binutils module.
