When you d/load the source package, and ectracted the files into
\home\rockbox
It auto created a rockbox-daily-20031118 subdirectory with apps etc in.
In the absence of directory structure description, it was not clear that
this
New subdir should not exist. If CVS had worked, would it have created
the correct
Structure?
