It's hard to say.  If you really did what you said, you should have

        cvs [admin aborted]: there is no version here; run 'cvs checkout' first

So, either you're running a very old version of CVS, you didn't do what
you said you did, or your repository is (or appears to be) checked out
from another repository.

OK, what's the NEXT amendment say?  I know it's in here someplace. -- Calvin
