If I understand what you're asking, "cvs update" *should* do what you
want.  If the timestamp on a file doesn't match what's in CVS/Entries,
the client sends the file to the server.  If the server finds that the
file isn't any different than what's in the repository, it sends back a
Checked-in response, which is supposed to cause the client to update
CVS/Entries appropriately.  The command-line version of CVS certainly
works that way, at least on Unix.
