I have created some symlinks in my repository, pointing out

But CVS is only looking at the symlinks timestamps. NOT the
timestamp on the files outside the repository!!!

Is there any options by which i can tell cvs where to look in
case of a symlink?


Don't use symlinks for files in your repository. CVS doesn't deal with them in any safe way.

Symlinks to directories in the repository work in some cases, but not all (I think). Use the -a option in the modules file.
