Sorry, I missed responding part of the questions.
 cvs-1.11.20 is the latest stable, it should have the least (probably does
not really have any) unexpected changes since cvs-1.11.1p1. Given your
reluctance to upgrade at all 1.11.20 is your best choice.

There should be no issues upgrading to 1.11.20 unless you were doing some
behaviors which were contraindicated for a long time like:
moving or deleting branch tags without -B.
using Checkin.prog and Update.prog functionality.
Method options (used by WinCVS & CVS 1.12.7+) in CVSROOTs are ignored.

see the following link for full details up through 1.11.19
Not sure why 1.11.20 is not listed in the archive directory.

For a though upgrade it should not hurt to run `cvs init` to get any NEW
config files.
