PowerBuilder Source Control Setup #2

We are setting up to use Merant PVCS Version Manager with our PowerBuilder 
development.  We have been looking at Sybase support technical document 
1010496 (PowerBuilder Source Control Recommended Setup) to make sure that 
we have a setup that allows multiple developers to develop and run at the 
same time.

The detail of this document may be sufficient for experienced PB people. 
For me though, terms like "distribute a copy", "add it to their copy" and 
"synchronise their registered set" don't tell me enough about how to go 
about it.  I am hoping that someone knows enough of what I am talking about 
to help.

Does it mean by "distribute a copy" that we should take a copy of the 
entire registered pbl via something like Windows Explorer, put it somewhere 
local to the developer and then modify the developer's library search path 
to include that, rather then the registered pbl?

Or is there some PB function for "distribute a copy of a library"?

I did it the first way and got a pbl with entries tagged with the same 
symbol as was the case for the entries in the registered library.  That 
seemed OK but when I added a new object to the registered library, and then 
used "Add Objects" to try to add it to the copy, I got a "Share Files" 
dialog box.  The Help for "Share Files" suggests that that file will act 
differently to those that are present in the copy due to being copied in 
Windows Explorer - "You can then check out, modify and check in the file 
like any other".

So now I am confused.  Is this "Share Files" facility what was meant by 
"distribute a copy"?

Further, what does "synchronise their registered set" mean, ie what 
function provided in the PB/PVCS setup can be used to do this?  Is it 
Refresh Status?  Is it Take? .. or Copy?  Is there a way of updating the 
whole copy from within PB, not just one file at a time?  Is it intended 
that the "synchronise" is done by taking another copy of the pbl via 
Windows Explorer?

Or is there some point/concept of the PB under source control that I am 
missing that would make it all clear?

Any help would be appreciated.
