Thank you for that explanation, but I'm a bit uncertain about
subdirectories. Will CVS only ignore the specified directory? Given
"/site/logs/November/01.log" etc, and "logs" in /site/.cvsignore, will CVS
_not_ ignore 01.log because that file is in November/, not logs/.
Presumably it would ignore /site/logs/error.txt because that is in logs/.
