Thanks, Donald and Noel for the confirmation on how I
thought things worked... :)

Well... I liked the idea that I'd be able to maintain it 
simply by checking out the CVSHOME directory and making 
updates, but I don't think I'll be making enough changes 
to groups and projects on a regular basis to make that as 
nice a benefit as originally expected.

Thanks again... :)
