question about cvsignore

Regarding cvsignore the Cederqvist manual says

 "The per-repository list in `$CVSROOT/CVSROOT/cvsignore' is appended to
the list, if that file exists."

currently, my $CVSROOT/CVSROOT dir does not contains a cvsignore file.  Is
it sufficient to simply create the file in the directory,
or do I need to checkout CVSROOT, and 'cvs add' the cvsignore file?

Also, will listing directory names in cvsignore work?  ie, can I put
'debug' and 'release' in cvsignore, to ignore my build directories?

Thanks in advance....
