B Reference manual for Administrative files

Inside the repository, in the directory ‘$CVSROOT/CVSROOT’, there are a number of supportive files for CVS. You can use CVS in a limited fashion without any of them, but if they are set up properly they can help make life easier. For a discussion of how to edit them, see section 16.7 The administrative files.

The most important of these files is the ‘modules’ file, which defines the modules inside the repository.
