Add only works in a CVS workspace.  You have to do a checkout first.  If
you're trying to add a new (toplevel) module, you probably wanted to do:

    cvs co -l .
    cvs add knock_server
    cvs ci

The manual claims you should use import.  I suppose it's a matter of
personal preferance and the details of the situation:

destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish
it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles,
and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to
effect their safety and happiness.
