A seperate one isn't necessary. CVS doesn't store any of that repository
directory information. It does not matter one single bit if you use
'www/test' or 'website' or 'a/b/c'. The only effect that has is what you
have to type to check it out locally (ie: cvs checkout website, or cvs
checkout www/test or cvs checout a/b/c)

Let's keep it under 'www', that's what it's meant for: all the websites.

Same here. Different file names are not an issue in my book.
