No,the files are not added to branch.
The 'Branch' is MAIN and the CVS tags shows HEAD.

It is the requirement of our project that no single
developer should remove files(even using cvs remove)
without consulting others involved and the PM; some of
them have removed files previously which caused a lot
of confusion.So this is the way we chose to enforce
Now they will have to go thro' the cvs admin to remove
unwanted files.
We review the repository regularly so that any
unwanted files are usually removed before the
developers feel the need for it.
