A copy is a backup is a copy ... isn't it?  Or are the filenames truncated
into the eightdot.tri format?  File permissions and ownerships are _usually_
not that important, but you'd have to restore it by hand and memory if it's
lost in the copy.

If I understand you right, you don't have direct access to the copy of the
repository, you can only use CVS towards it?

I guess it should be possible to get all information from the ,v-files using
only cvs commands, thus it should be possible to recreate the ,v-files ...
but it sounds like a horrible task.

As stated before ... it's important to keep (uncorrupted) backups :-)
