CVS question

Say I check out some module from a CVS server:

$ CVS_RSH=ssh cvs -d '' co some_module

That module creates directory some_module (although I understand modules can comprise multiple directories). So, I go in there:

$ cvs some_modules

Time passes. People update.

$ cvs update

Okay, now I have the new files More time passes. People add files directories.

$ cvs update

It doesn't fetch me the new files directories.

$ cvs co some_module

It makes a new directory called some_module under some_module

$ cd ..
$ cvs -d `cat some_moduie/CVS/Root` co some_module

There we go.

But that seems ugly and is a pain. What's a better way?

(This has nothing to do with LiveJournal, other than that I'm in the process of putting all the code into CVS finally.....)
