> I have changed my #BASEDIR attribute and with little exceptions it is working fine and it is suitable for us. What now want to change is the structure of the directories. So all configs and etc. are going in $BASEDIR/$GROUP. This is how it works by designed, and I want to add one more directory in this path so it looks like $BASEDIR/$GROUP/Configuration.

move $BASEDIR, symlink old to new.
move $BASEDIR, update rancid.conf, (update All of the CVS/Repository files or
re-checkout all of the group dirs), update cron jobs.

> Example:
> The configs file will now be in $BASEDIR/$GROUP/Configuration/configs;
> The CVS will be in $BASEDIR/$GROUP/Configuration/CVS;
> And so on. I was looking in the scripts, but could find where and how rancid-cvs is creating the directories (if actually rancid-cvs is creating them).
