I have done a lot of CVS repository administration for some (big) open
source projects.

In effect as soon as you want to do something funky with CVS you need to
do 'repo copies': where an administrator takes the current ,v files and
verbatim copies them to a new location whereupon the previous files can
finally be removed.

CVS does have elegant distribution programs available in the form of
CVSup and CVSync.
