I take your word for it that you _don't_ get them (what a bummer), but
I do have them. I imagine this is true for most users of rsync.
Maybe this is a relatively recent change? My most recent updated
.cvsignore is dated 2002-06-17.
There is a global cvsignore file. I think that it is probably
reasonable to put many of the more common ignores in there; that has
the advantage of being all server-side, too. Your suggestions would

If this _is_ a recent change and .cvsignore (which is a pretty
harmless dotfile AFAIK) can't be given special treatment, what you can
do is very simple: do a single CVS update from sunsite, then check
the .cvsignore files into your repository using the cvs -d flag. This
will not be harmful if Sunsite's policy with respect to the .cvsignore
files is amended; the .cvsignore,v files will merely be overwritten.
