Description waffletchnlgy 2006-11-21 17:17:42 UTC
From the NB CVS documentation, CVS- > Checkout appears to run in the background:
cvs checkout -P -R -A -d mySandBox project1/commercial/customerA/moduleX
This will checkout the moduleX code into:

When issuing the above cvs command on the command line, I  will checkout the
moduleX code into 

I suspect therefor that the NB CVS plugin is actually creating subdirs, prior to
issuing the checkout command. This should be an option in the UI, and not done
automatically. It's a pain to have to traverse through the subdirs.
