ok this is what I use

export CVSROOT=''
cvs login

just replace the jirka with your login name .. and cvs login will ask
you for your password

cvs is slightly hard to figure out at first ... but you'll get it ...

read the cvs manpage

to add soemthing to gnome-games

mkdir othello
cvs -z9 add othello

then unpack your stuff in othello

and 'cvs -z9 add *' inside there ...

then do

cd ..; cvs -z9 commit

and it should commit all the new changes you did in the gnome-games tree
which should be just the othello dir (give or take a few autogenerated
files which for some reason are still in cvs)

put your commit message in the editor it starts up ... save it ... and
off you go ...

then you can start integrating it into the build process ... I just steal
the from another dir ... add makefile creation into

make sure it all works .... and commit ...

well .. this should change ... right now so many things are fluid we'd end up
writing tutorials that would be obscoleted fairly quickly ...

I plan to give a gnome programming tutorial on january's linc ... 

so I'll probably come up with some sort of tutorial soon
