The old system, and copied to the new, had a boot time script which
created those directories upon boot.  See vcs /etc/init.d/cvs_lockdirs
for the previous implementation and vcs0 /etc/rc.local for my update
of it when I copied it over.

At the time this worried me and I couldn't find a cron task on the old
system that created those lock directories.  I wrote something to the
mailing list at the time about it.  It still seems that there is
something missing from the situation.

Cool!  Thanks for that.

However a small but important detail.

That does not happen to be a free license!  The default of only that
text is "All rights reserved." making it non-free.  :-(

The license I have been using with Savannah utilities is a simple all
permissive one.  Therefore of course I suggest it for small simple
things like this.  Of course the choice is yours.
