I assume you mean to store important "revisions" of the product files.

If so, then yes, but such procedures used to do so should not involve
CVS.  Indeed if you want to be really protective of your software
process and to make it as hygienic as possible then those procedures
_MUST_NOT_ involve the same tools used to store and manage changes to
the source code that is the intput used to generate those product

(as for storing and tracking the tools themselves, well when using CVS
for the source code it makes more sense to use some other mechanism for
the tools -- not CVS)
