You should run ``cvs init'' when upgrading -- it will preserve your
current administrative files (theoretically, it could update them to a
new format, but that's never been needed) and add any new ones.  It
actually does a fresh checkout of all of the administrative files (just
like a commit to the $CVSROOT/CVSROOT directory does), so if the
administrative files ever get out of sync with the repository, it's an
easy way to get them back in sync.
