Why do you need to remember an empty directory?
Based on my experience, you either need to put a dummy (maybe a readme) file in the directory so that is no longer empty, or you need to have your build process create the directory at runtime.

Here's a sort-of simple problem. If I do "cvs tag" on an empty directory, it
looks like CVS doesn't add anything to the CVSROOT/val-tags file, and thus
has no idea that the tag ever existed.

So say I'm trying to remember the state of a directory, which happens to be
empty, so I can restore it later. When I try to restore it. CVS won't find
the tag, and it won't do anything. It should restore an empty directory.

Is this a bug? Is there a way to force it to add the tag to the val-tags
