I was planning to follow the directions located in 7.4.1 of:

http://durak.org/cvswebsites/doc/cvs_7.html#SEC69

Copying the history files will carry over tags and stuff which is the
Wrong Thing(tm). By doing an add/rm pair, the history of the old files
is maintained in their proper location, while the new files begin a new
set of history with no tags and stuff. Their initial comment states how
they arrived and where prior history information is located.

Section 7.4.2 doesn't work for us, and I think 7.4.3 is overly complex.
I don't think we really want the history in the new location. It doesn't
really make a lot of sense and could confuse somebody who is actually
reviewing the progression of the files.

Does anybody object to the move as described by 7.4.1 of the
above-referenced document?
