Is renaming a repository as easy as mv <oldname> <newname> at the UNIX
command line and letting anyone who has
things checked out know they have to fix up all of the CVS/Root files in
their sandboxes as well as their ~/.cvspass files if for pserver?

That's almost true. Since/if you're using :pserver: on the server side then
you need to modify "inetd.conf" option "--allow-root=" value.  Read this:

Yes That is true! Forgot to mention I have a inetd.conf hack to run a shell to dynamically grab any directory in a certain location and treat it as a repository:
/usr/bin/cvs -f  `ls -d /cvs/* | sed -e '1,$s/.*/--allow-root=&/'` pserver

Then I don't have to have the unix admins edit the inetd.conf file... :)

Also consider cvs will use repositories identified by symbolic links and
accepts multiple "--allow-root=" options.  Consider doing:

   mv <oldname> <newname>  # new name is hard linked
   ln <newname> <oldname>  # old name is symbolic link

In "inetd.conf" use "--allow-root=<newname> --allow-root=<oldname>" and
then access by old AND new names should work concurrently.

concerned about history - but I see nothing in CVSROOT that is depending
on the name of the repository...

Don't know about this one myself.
