I tend to type "cvs -n up" on entering and exiting a directory, and as
a sort of nervous twitch. That just tells me that something has changed.

I also have an alias that I tend to run from the top of the tree at 
least a couple of times a day, just in case I've missed something:

alias cvscheck "cvs -n up |& egrep '^[CMUPAR]|\.java|html|config|\.data|jar'"

I presume that this falls under 'good practices'...

That script might be a useful to add into the 'nervous twitch'
