Here is my .cvsrc:

checkout -P
update -P -d
diff -u -d -b -w
rdiff -u
cvs -q -z3

It prunes all the rest of the empty dirs.  Plus, that isn't an empty
directory in HEAD.  That directory has files in it.  I don't know where
you are checking out against, but I get actual files when I do:

cvs -d co apache-2.0

'fraid not.

It wasn't the trailing slash.  It was the tailing htdocs.  In other words,
I did cvs co -d htdocs httpd-docs-2.0.  That doesn't work.

I completely disagree.  Have you noticed that 99% of the changes to the
docs are from non-coders.  That is very good and very bad.  It is good
because the docs are getting updated and bad because it shows that the
coders feel they don't need to deal with the docs.

BTW, I just did another FRESH checkout from CVS, and I'm still getting
files in the htdocs directory.

There is a problem, and you are one of the few people to not see it.  I
don't know what you are doing differently from the rest of us, but others
have said they are having problems with the htdocs dir.
