CVS Read-Only Access: readers & writers files

I'm reading the manual for CVS 1.11.20 and on page 27 (preprinted on the page, however, the .pdf document shows it to be page 29) I find the documentation for readers and writers files somewhat confusing and ambiguous. Could both readers and writers coexist or one at any given time?

Question 1: Could anyone tell me when (as of what version) these files were implemented? I'm running CVS 1.11.1p1 on our Linux server and I just created the 'readers' file anyway and added a user to and will ask him to test it. I don't think I could or would want to test and block myself lest running the risk of undoing what I've done. Would my current version of CVS understand readers?

Question 2: If not, then I'm overdue an upgrade and hate to bring down the server during a critical release. Would someone please shed some light on upgrading?
