It's also worth noting that the CVS update reports do not list which
files are *deleted*, which can get you into severe trouble when things
move around.  I used to update via ftp by editing CVS reports by hand,
and generally wound up having to bulk-FTP the whole tree every month
or two after various forms of errors accumulated.

It would, indeed, be nice to have some alternate method of keeping up-
to-date, but I'm the load on sun-lamp would be intolerable.  Perhaps
someone else could mirror the CVS tree, and prepare weekly diffs?
(Or maybe we just need a floppy chain-letter arrangement...  :-)
