As per my knowledge to just create a module you need not add any entry in
Module file. Just by adding a Module name in module file does not create a
project. Instead you will get an error message when you try to check out
that project. Error message will look like
cvs [checkout aborted]: there is no repository <CVSROOR>/<MODULENAME>
We use Module file to add certain restrictions on the usage of that
repository. For example there is an administrative project that I want to
know who is checking out or committing, I would add an entry in module file
to control that part.
To create a module in CVS there are two different ways. Read following part
of CVS manual.
The module file has nothing to do with creating a module in CVS. You can
have modules that you work on and their names not listed in module file.

Well, I did a cvs co src and expected to find an empty folder by the name
of the module I thus created. I didn't find it.
So I created a folder by that module name and added a file to it and
tried to check in. If I had succeded in creating a module in cvs,
wouldn't it accept file check-in to that module ?
