Would the trunk be the root directory? I got this working but what a
nightmare. Do you know why it does not just copy in the folder hierarchy?
I am an embedded developer so this is not typically my forte. I just
remembered I worked on CVS/tort before and I don't remember having to follow
these procedures and is a nightmare when one is preocupied with other code
matters. No wonder you get paranoi.
