make cvs-rm FILES="file1 file2 ..."

make cvs-add FILES="file1 file2 ..."
adds a file or files specified by the FILES variable to cvs.
creates a branch based on the major version number, increments the major version number, sets the minor and point versions to zero and checks out the branch into a new directory.
creates a branch based on the minor version number, increments the minor version, sets the point version to zero number and checks out the branch into a new directory.
