Manually moving directories and files on the CVS server from the
repository to outside the repository is not usually recommended.

Let the CVS users execute the command
'cvs remove file-to-be-removed'
then the file-to-be-removed stays in the CVS repository
but is not longer accessible to main (HEAD) branch
developers.  However, it is still available for those
who have tagged whole sections of code that need
that file.  On the CVS server, an Attic directory is
created and the file goes there.  Thus the file is
still available for older builds (compliance with older
systems or standards, etc.) but no longer is "seen"
by developers working at the HEAD.   The l option
on cvs remove command is local directory only.  The
R or recursive option is default if no argument is given.
