[Python-Dev] Sourceforge CVS repository behaving strange?

Either my brain needs to be pushed into gear or the CVS 
repository is behaving very strange.

About half an hour ago I added and checked in a file 
Mac/OSX/setupDocs.py, but after I did another cvs update the 
file immediately disappeared with the message that it was no 
longer in the repository.

And if I check the repository over the web (at 
bin/viewcvs.cgi/python/python/dist/src/Mac/OSX/) the file is 
indeed gone. Moreover, if I look there the other files (such as 
the Makefile) *also* seem to be gone. But cvs update doesn't 
think they're gone, and doing a fresh checkout also makes them 
appear as they should (but it does not revive setupDocs.py:-().

Hmm, together with checking in setupDocs.py I also added an 
entry to Misc/ACKS, lemme check... No Misc/ACKS in viewcvs... 
Actually, there are no files at all in viewcvs, just directories!

I am now utterly confused, can someone shed light on this?
