init

Synopsis: init NEW_REPOSITORY

Creates a new repository (that is, a root repository in which many different projects are stored). You will almost always want to use the global -d option with this, as in

     floss$ cvs -d /usr/local/yet_another_repository init

because even if you have a CVSROOT environment variable set, it's probably pointing to an existing repository, which would be useless and possibly dangerous in the context of this command. (See Repository Administration for additional steps that you should take after initializing a new repository.)

Options: None.
