add file and .cvsignore

From: Philippe Legay <ply_at_acial.fr>

I have received a big projet (2000 files + 8000 gif files).

My idea is :
1) tar zxvf bigproject.tgz
2) Then check-in check out the files that I will modify for bug correction.

So is it or not possible (I read some time yes, some time no and I did
succeed to do it) to create .cvsignore for the files of bigproject.tgz (except for the modified files) that allows me to do svn import or svn add without include files from the bigproject.

If yes how must I do that (specific version of the server or the client ?) Must the name of .cvsignore file be .cvsignore or can it be "myexclusionfilelist" ?

Who is responsable to manage the cvsignore file ? The client or the server ?

Thanks for any clear pointer about this problem (that seems to be a classical one).
