No, not really, and if there was it would be defeating the
core function of CVS. CVS is not a document control
repository, it is a versioning system for working projects.
You check out the entire project so that CVS can track
what you are doing with it and protect it against someone
else checking it out and changing it at the same time you
are, because there is no change control beyond checking
in and out and restricting who can do it.
For your release numbered documents, you need to use
document revision tracking that is independent of the
versioning in the title, for example: v3.8.1, Rev A, Rev B,
Rev C, etc. These revision designations do not have to
be incorporated into your document release title if they
are only interim uploads of WIP and are not released to
others. CVS treats each revision upload as a new file in
order to give you the ability to recover previous revisions
if you need to.
