This sounds a bit weird and it is against the proper use of CVS but .....

I am using a Redhat Linux machine. And there is a server where we have the real repository for the project we are working on.

For simple reasons like
- backing up my work
- not putting unstable code on the real repository
I want to create the same cvs repository on my machine and do more frequent commits. This cvs repository on my machine will be most of the time tracking my own changes.

From time to time, I will be updating the repository on the server and also updating my working copy.

How is it possible to have a working directory be affected by 2 different repository on different machines??

currently the working copy is in connection with the server.
under the CVS/ directory
I have the Root and Repository files which keep the connection and module information.

address@hidden CVS]$ more Root
address@hidden CVS]$ more Repository

Should I remove these files and pass these as parameters to the cvs command each time I use it?
