If "cvs add" will only warn about the problems, -- that's
OK with me as a user.

Actually, the way I see the situation is it only prevents the add if you
have requested the check with -c, if you have not used -c there is no
connection to the server and therefor can be no warning or prevention.

Actually, to err on the side of safety (which I define as policy enforcement in this case), I recommend that the trigger be enabled by default. The power users can turn it off in their .cvsrc files. I have two reasons for this: The first is that they're the ones who express an opinion and there are fewer of them than there are "ordinary" users, and the second is that they're the ones most capable of making the change in their own environments.

This opinion hasn't been clear in all of my posts, but this is how I really think it should work. On this point I seem to be getting overruled because most of the members of this group are power users and don't adequately represent the end user community.
