I started this project last summer so I don't t remember exactly how I did certain things. The project initially had 2 directories and I added a new one - doc/ - in my working directory. And I have a Manual.tex under this doc directory. Apparently I managed to cvs-add and cvs-commit Manual.tex but apparently I did not cvs-add and cvs-commit doc. And apparently cvs never complained. And now when I checked out the project from the repository, the doc directory and the files therein are missing. So I went back to add doc, and CVS said something about "added independently by second party". And a CVS directory was created under doc:
% pwd
address@hidden ls
Entries      Repository   Root         Tag
% cd ..
% cvs status -v Manual.tex
cvs status: move away Manual.tex; it is in the way
File: Manual.tex        Status: Unresolved Conflict

  Working revision:    No entry for Manual.tex
Repository revision: /home/messengr/cvs/myproj/doc/Attic/Manual.tex,v

       version3                           (branch: 1.1.2)

What should I do to add/commit doc so that when I check out the project, doc and its content would be available? thx.
