Correct.

It's very rare for user to try to edit content of Version Control
directories. These are nor considered "dot-files" in a sense, that they
would be user editable by default. The content of Version Control
directories is managed by external programs.

Examples (Emacs CVS and directory lisp/) where Version Control
directories are ignored:

    loaddefs.el
    bindings.el
    find-cmd.el
    vc-hooks.el
