Bug#235735: lintian: CVS / .cvsignore terminology could be better

Package: lintian
Version: 1.22.11
Severity: minor

The terminology used for saying that a CVS or .cvsignore file is
included could be better. Specifically:

It may have been installed by accident.
It may have been included by accident.

And since cvs export doesn't even get rid of .cvsignore files the amount
of them in the archive is probably pretty high. Anyone using cvs and not
using something like autotools "make dist" to produce tarballs likely
will have them in source.
