No - in general only text files and small images and such go in the web
CVS. When I've prepared binaries and source tarballs in the past I used to
upload them to Markus' FTP server and ask him to copy them over to the
webserver, but AFAIK it isn't running any more so the last time (5.4.1
release in the summer) I put the files on my own FTP server and asked him
to copy them across.

There's not sure but there's at least a convention as to which files go in
the CVS and which are manually copied over - look at some of the other
binaries directories in CVS and compare them to what's actually there on
the webserver to get an idea.
Hope that points you in the right direction.
