What are CVS modules?

CVS modules

The CVS repository of each project is divided into modules which you can download separately. The list of existing modules for this project can be obtained by looking at the root of the CVS repository; each File listed there is the name of a module, which can substitute the generic used below in the examples of the co command of CVS.Note that . (dot) is always also a valid module name which stands for “all available modules” in a project. Most projects have a module with the same name of the project, where the main software development takes place. The same applies to the Webpages Repository.
