I don't think so.  Check yourself on the server, and you will find that the
directories are really added to the repository.  At least theoretically a
user can add directories recursively this way and cause the free disk space
to become zero.

No, what you're seeing is a side-effect of the way CVS works under the
hood.  In reality no directory is created in the managed module because
CVS does not manage directories -- it manages only changes to files that
are contained within directories.

The effect of "cvs add new-directory" is simply an artifact of the
implementation and provided you use CVS in the recommended manner you
can treat this an an abberation which is necessary in order to use CVS
but which is not a true change that needs to be managed from any "*info"
