To the OP: If your server already has a CVS server (and, thus, a CVSROOT
directory) and you want to merge both repositories into one, make sure
you do NOT move that directory over to the server, but make sure you
MERGE them in an appropriate way. If you just overwrite the old CVSROOT,
you might get trouble with the data which is already stored on the

Apart from this, it works exactly like you thought (and Pierre
confirmed). Obviously, its best if you do not try to merge two cvs
servers into one.
