Empty directory was not created

Empty directory was not created

Empty directory was not created

Hello Everyone,
I’m importing to CVS directory structure. Among some files this structure contains empty directory. When checked into CVS this empty directory is ignored. Why? how to avoid such a “smart” cvs behavior?

Also related question:
I have
test.ksh~ (which is created by xemacs )
and test.ksh.old
while importing to cvs I can see that test.ksh~ and test.ksh.old are ignored.
why? how to avoid it?

Many Thanks!

RE: Empty directory was not created

CVS doesn't explicitly handle directories.
You can get past this by creating a blank placeholder file inside the directory.
