A short thought on cvs


I fixed my earlier problems with color.

I have now done a cvs checkout -P -r OPENBSD_3_5 src

but I am a bit non-plussed by the instructions on http://www.openbsd.org/anoncvs.html#starting where it states the following

First, start out by `get'-ing an initial tree:
# setenv CVSROOT anoncvs_(_at_)_anoncvs_(_dot_)_ca_(_dot_)_openbsd_(_dot_)_org:/cvs
	# cd /usr
	# cvs -q get -rOPENBSD_3_5 -P src

 Anytime afterwards, to `update' this tree:

 (If you are following the patch branch for 3.5):

	# cd /usr/src
	# cvs -q up -rOPENBSD_3_5 -Pd

The thing I dont quite understand. After I have checked out the patch branch do i really need to do cvs -q get -rOPENBSD_3_5 -P src? I mean I allready have it checked out....shouldnt I just do a # cvs -q up -rOPENBSD_3_5 -Pd???

As this question might reveal, I'm not quite sure I grasp the whole concept here.
