Well they "worked" for me (as typed).

I'm a great fan of learning-by-doing. Why don't you experiment, on a test
repository that won't matter if you screw it up? If you don't have one,
simply create a $CVSROOT/cvs-test directory in your main repository.

When you find those commands don't do what you expect, you can experiment
until you find the right combination that does work ;-)
