The how do you explain the fact that when I now check out the project, doc is missing?
% cvs -d /home/messengr/cvs checkout -r v3_0_6 myproj
% cd myproj/
% ls
AUTHORS    CVS/       Makefile   NEWS       Readme     compiler/  daemon/
(doc is missing)

Do you have a ~/.cvsrc file that specifies 'checkout -P'? The 'Existing Tags:' for Manual.tex doesn't include the 'v3_0_6' tag, so that file isn't a part of that branch/tag. If a directory is empty, and the '-P' option is used with 'cvs checkout' the empty directory will be pruned from your working directory. Since you didn't specify the '-P' option in your command, it could be specified in the ~/.cvsrc file.

Actually, I did a quick little test and it seems that an empty sub-directory is pruned (in this case) regardless of whether -P is present. So, the reason that the doc directory is missing in your working directory is because the Manual.tex file was not tagged with the v3_0_6 tag, and so when you checked out the myproj hierarchy using that tag the doc directory was empty, and so was not checked out in your working directory.
