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.
