Do "cvs update" to refresh. Then, locally in your checked-out tree, cd
into htdocs. Make the changes to meeting.sub (as you did). Then do:
This assumes that you have CVSROOT set appropriately, or set in your
CVS/Root file, or such.
The /home/users/q/qu/quaid error isn't releveant. Not sure why you're
getting it, but it obviously isn't stopping you from doing anything,
as witness your experience with index.sub, earlier.
The "Up-to-date check failed" error is your culprit. No, I don't know
why you're getting it, but it's definitely what's tripping you up.
Remember I said you needed to do "cvs update" just before starting your
edit? Now, you know why.
