It seems that what is being asked for is a CVS command to convert a 
regular directory into a cvs workspace directory so that it isn't 
necessary to do an initial checkout. But in virtually every situation 
(there may be an occasional exception), everyone that is working on a 
project needs their own workspace directory. So, everybody for the most 
part has to do a checkout anyway. Implementing a new CVS operation to 
avoid a single checkout operation in the context of a large project 
where there will be inumerable checkout would no warrant the effort 
required, IMHO. Thanks
