To add files to the CVS site repository, first create or add them to your working copy of the project, and edit these new files to your liking. Same goes for directories (folders). Just create what you need within your working copy of the site. If your project follows any special navigation structure or naming scheme beyond our Guidelines for Projects for ICG contractors, you'll want to make sure you follow those in the creation of new files.
Once your newly created files and folders are tested and ready in your working copy of the site, use the cvs add command to schedule the filenames for upload to the CVS server:
$ cvs add newfile.html cvs server: scheduling file `newfile.html' for addition cvs server: use 'cvs commit' to add this file permanently $
This will not send the actual files to the CVS server yet, it simply make a note to alert the server to expect these files the next time you commit the project (Section 6).
