You might be interested in the following threads:

I would suggest consulting with Greg A. Woods to find out if he has began
implementation, or has a coherent set (not spread across several emails) of
specifications for the changes suggested in the above links. Also be aware
the request in 2004-11/msg00191 for the ability to do the "add -C" thing,
i.e., don't make it impossible.

Over all I think this, removing "cvs add"'s need to contact the server, is
the FIRST step in giving cvs an "off-line" mode. (yes that means I have been
thinking about it, but have not implemented anything.)
