This reveals that you haven't read the man page -- please give it a try.

The one thing that it doesn't mention is that rsync will not know about
any exceptions made to cvs's default ignore rules (which could only be
discovered by reading the names in the CVS/Entries file -- something
that rsync doesn't do).
