Synopsis

init

Initializes the repository. Use the global -d option to specify the repository’s directory if $CVSROOT isn’t set appropriately.

The newly initialized repository will contain a CVSROOT module and nothing else. Once the repository is initialized, use other CVS commands to add files to it or to check out the CVSROOT module to make changes to the administrative files.
