Description Havoc Pennington 2001-11-03 00:02:30 EST
If your CVSROOT is say "anoncvs@anoncvs.xfree86.org:/cvs" and your 
local directory you're trying to check out into is "/cvs/whatever", 
then CVS barfs claiming "cvs [checkout aborted]: Cannot check out files
into the repository itself", but the local dir is not the repository, it is
a local directory. Appears to be a not-smart-enough strcmp ("/cvs", "/cvs") 
Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2001-11-03 00:03:20 EST
The extra-funny thing is that if you specify the CVSROOT with a slash on the end, 
"/cvs/" instead of "/cvs", then that tricks CVS into working properly. ;-)
