Yes. CVS will always ignore the CVS directory as a CVS directory inside
of the repository is used for cvs edit and cvs watch related control

This should work fine with cvs 1.11.22 and cvs 1.12.13. There may have
been more ancient releases of CVS which did not do the same thing, but
I do not recall which ones those would have been.

I understand. I tend to use 'cvs import -I ! -ko -d -X' myself, so that
files are only on the vendor branch with the original datestamp and
without normal cvs keyword expansion. In some cases, I would then go in
with cvs admin and change the -ko to a -kb for the small binary files
(e.g., .jpg and .png and *.pdf) that might have come along for the ride
and need to be binary to work properly for non-UNIX checkouts.
