Note that in the process described in the manual you are not importing RCS
repository files using the "cvs import" command but by copying the
",v" files directly into the CVS repository.  See the difference?  In the
when the files are directly copied, when you later create a workspace using
"cvs checkout", CVS will extract the desired versions of the files without
",v" suffix based on the history stored in the repository files, in the same
as RCS would handle its repository files.  But if you used "cvs import" to
RCS repository files, you would attempting to track the revisions of those
files, not the original files, so you would presumably get ",v" files out.
