CVSup doesn't depend on CVS (it can work with non CVS files).
But for CVS (more precisly RCS) files is more efficient.
Thus, it's only up to you which part of cvs repository you will
synchronize. Let's suppose your $CVSROOT contains:
CVSROOT - cvs admin files
global - files to share
local - files for local purpose only

If you synchronize only global dir, you can only see changes.
Adding CVSROOT you can do check-out but not check-in (you can
do checkin via pserver to the original rep.)
For details see:
