Using csup

I'd like to move to using csup(1) and there's an error in the manpage
that's raising some questions for me:

        base=base   The default base directory is /usr/local/etc/csup.

        /usr/local/etc/cvsup                Default base directory.
        sup                                 Default collDir subdirectory.
        base/collDir/collection/checkouts*  List files.

Assuming that the default 'base' directory is /usr/local/etc/cvsup, would
the following three files be sufficient for csup to work?

# /usr/local/etc/cvsup/standard-supfile
*default tag=RELENG_7_0
*default release=cvs delete use-rel-suffix compress

# /usr/local/etc/cvsup/doc-supfile

# /usr/local/etc/cvsup/ports-supfile
ports-all tag=.

# usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/refuse
[contents of global refusefile]
