Post-Installation of CVS 1.11.1p1

As a post-intallation of CVS 1.11.1p1 upgrade from 1.10 or 1.11,
I wonder if it's always safe to re-initialize the CVSROOT as follows:

Re-initialize CVSROOT to make sure all the admin files are compatible with the latest version of CVS

        login as admin or user
        cd $HOME/workspace
        cvs co CVSROOT
        mv CVSROOT CVSROOT.old
        cvs init
        cvs co CVSROOT

If you have customized admin files in CVSROOT, you need do the following:

        cd CVSROOT
        cp ../CVSROOT.old/<admin file> .
        cvs commit

Also I wonder if I should delete $CVSROOT/CVSROOT before issuing "cvs init" command.

Any comments?
