Just wondering if this is design-intent:

I have a sandbox, and locally I create a new directory with a couple of files:


I don't do a cvs add for these.

Somebody else does a cvs commit on the following:

When I run cvs update -PdC, I get my_dir/f3, but my CVS/Entries file is not updated to contain my_dir.

I would think the CVS/Entries file should get updated.

A new directory with files has been added to the repository. When I run cvs update -PdC on my sandbox, it gets the new directory/files, but it doesn't add the new directory the appropriate CVS/Entries file.

If I do a cvs co, I see the CVS/Entries file has the correct info.
