The CVS in our tree is primarily intended for those with write access
to the NetBSD source repository. It will probably work for end users,
but I suggest obtaining an officially released version.
The cvs sources in othersrc more or less track the CVS development
snapshots which may not be tested as well as a real release. They
sometimes also have other random experimental hacks we found are
needed to get around CVS' limitations (the good hacks end up in
the master CVS distribution after they've proven themselves).
Perhaps we should move cvs out of othersrc and into a non-exported
hierarchy like has been done with GNATS.
