RE: CVS setup

My previous employer uses cvs and WinCVS with files with spaces in their
names. cvs itself has only a couple of bugs, maybe even fixed in the latest
release, with handling files with spaces in them. I remember that top level
directories, and module names, should not have spaces in them. And you
cannot check out a single file which has spaces in its name or its path,
because no matter how you quote it, it gets broken at the space.
I was able to set up and cvsweb.cgi with minimal modifications
to support filenames with spaces. All things considered, I think you're
better off checking in the files with spaces in their names than checking in
these zipped packages.
