Can someone else on the team give Jos' stuff a try -- I super overloaded. If
I can squeeze it in tomorrow it'll be ok, otherwise I won't be able to look
at it for at least a week.

I just created an empty "devel" under the "install" directory and used
TortoiseCVS to do a "CVS Add..." on it -- worked just fine. So there is now
an empty devel directory in the repository.

Something must be confusing CVS. Maybe you have some "CVS" directories in
you "devel" tree?

Try saving off your devel tree somewhere, then do a CVS Update on the
"install" dir to get the "devel dir I just added. And then copy contents of
your devel tree into the new devel dir created by the update. Make sure your
devel tree does not have any CVS dirs in it (except for "devel" itself,
which should have one from the update). Then try "CVS Add..." the new
contents  of the devel tree.

Hopefully that will work. If not, zip it up and post it somewhere and I'll
get it added.
