I've read about how CVS handles the files that we want it to ignore, and I'm
experiencing a problem with the "cvs update -I" command.
I have some ".cvsignore" files in directories of my project, and I want to
append some files to the ignore list, but only when running a specific "cvs
update" command. The files that I've put in the ".cvsignore" file aren't the
same as the ones that I input in my update command, but the latter aren't
ignored when I update my project.

And here's the command that I run from the root of my project :
cvs -q update -Pd -IsomeFile.xml

CVS keeps updating and merging "someFile.xml" every time I run the update
command, while according to the documentation, it should create the "ignored
files list" from the update command AND the ".cvignore" file contents.

I am running CVS version 1.12.9 on a Ubuntu server, and connecting with

Hope you can help me on this one! Thanks in advance
