Indeed this helps a lot.

There is one repository, however, there are (at least) two interfaces
to it. One the :pserver: (public) and second a private cvs interface
over a secure connection (private). And then some samba team members
can probably do local cvs when they are working on the box that holds
the repository.
Anyhow, there must be a (small) difference between the public and private
way of getting things...

>More confused than ever,

I don't know how the deal is exactly either. I did a lot of guessing.
It doesn't really matter though; just do a fresh checkout whenever you
have the feeling you are the only one who can't compile or if you just
want to make sure this is not the problem.
