Last night, I took a tree that didn't have the htdocs directory, and
checked out the httpd-docs-2.0 into htdocs.  This morning I tried to
update that tree to get the fixes that were committed last night.  I got
errors from CVS.  Somebody about CVS/EmptyDir not being found.  I can't be
the only person seeing these problems, because last week Roy was willing
to put the htdocs stuff back into the apache tree to fix these problems.

I JUST did a completely fresh checkout of Apache against HEAD, and there
is an htdocs directory.  That means that when I went to execute the cvs
command above, I get errors:

Warning: Remote host denied X11 forwarding, perhaps xauth program could
not be run on the server side.
cvs server: existing repository /home/cvs/apache-2.0/htdocs does not match
cvs server: ignoring module httpd-docs-2.0/htdocs

Now, if I remove htdocs from the Apache tree, I can successfully checkout
htdocs.  It looks like last night, I left off the trailing htdocs/
directory from the httpd-docs-2.0 repository, which is what cause my
problem.  Regardless, the errors above are a problem.  The docs have
become a bigger hassle than they are worth right now.
