If you do that, developers won't be able to do their work. For example,
if someone adds a new source file to the project, but does not publish
the corresponding change to the Makefile, the compilation and linking
will break for everyone else who picks up the new changes.

CVS allows everyone to change the Makefile in parallel and then to
merge the changes. Always update before you commit to incorporate
the latest changes from the repository, and ensure that what you commit

Meta-CVS: solid version control tool with directory structure versioning.
