Eclipse CVS - web project acting "funny"

I'm using MyEclipse 4.1 and Eclipse 3.1.2. So far, I absolutely LOVE MyEclipse but now I'm having some minor annoyances w/ CVS. I setup a gentoo server box here in my home office and installed CVS on it. I'm very inexperienced w/ CVS and relatively new to maybe I'm just doing something wrong.

Anyhow, I "shared" the web project and added it to CVS but when I try to commit the top-level of the project (project name is "MyProject" w/ all of the sub-folders below it) - it doesn't list anything to commit so they do not get committed. When I commit a plain ol' Java project (library) I see a list of files to be committed and they clearly get works fine. If I were to pick out the "src" folder in the project and commit works for just that sub-folder...but when I try it for "web" (where I've got my web project i.e. WEB-INF, etc.)...again I don't see any files to commit and therefore nothing gets committed.

What am I doing wrong?

On the Java Perspective, right-click on the project name and select the "Team/Synchronize with Repository" menu option.

What does it do?

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
