To be honest, I'm not sure if it would help. In 2001 I sent a bug report=20
in to the cvs folks, complete with test case. Here's the scenario:
You have a file with local changes. Someone deletes the file from cvs,=20
putting the ,v file in the Attic. You cvs update, then you check in your=20
changes. You bring the file back to life, but the ,v file stays in the=20
Attic. So future checkouts won't pick it up unless you mention it by name.
This issue recently surfaced with files in src/sys.
You can see my efforts at resolving the issue in revisions 1.12 and 1.23=20
of pkgsrc/net/ucd-snmp-current/Makefile .
