I know that one shouldn't care about revision numbers in CVS, but since we want to be able to trace old revisions of files, from before we started to use CVS, we'd like to 'mess' a little with them. The question is if it's safe.

The major revision number (i.e. 1 in 1.3) may in some of our files be increased to 2 or even 3. Now when we start using CVS I see that we can use 'cvs commit -r2.4 file.txt' to commit a file with a specific revision number (in the example 2.4). Is this safe, or may we run into some trouble later on?

Thanks for your help.
