Keep in mind that, although Greg does not acknowledge it, a number of people in this forum have stated a requirement for an add-time trigger that could be used for such things as enforcement of naming conventions and access control. Such a feature (referred to in the past as "addinfo") would reinstate the need to contact the server during additions.

Could you restate it please? Is it just that you
want a recursive 'cvs add' or is it something

A Proposal to Avoid Immediately Creating Directories in the Repository

This proposal fixes the "cvs add" function so that it no longer handles
directories in any special way and instead simply treats them as
underlying structure that holds all the files apart.  Together with
this change will be bundled the total disconnection of "cvs add" from
any repository actions (thus allowing "cvs add" to work properly on a
disconnected client machine in all circumstances). In its entirety this proposal brings the "cvs add" user interface (command-line interface and
resulting behaviour) into conformance with all other CVS sub-commands
that operate from within a CVS working directory.
