FWIW, I've used CVSup on FreeBSD, and I don't think there should be a
cvsup.netbsd.org. For NetBSD to provide a machine in the netbsd.org
domain would make it look like we were advocating CVSup as a
distribution mechanism for anyone that wants to run NetBSD, which is
the wrong message to send when it doesn't run on all of our platforms.
However, I don't think there'd be any significant objection to linking
a third-party CVSup server from some 'NetBSD resources' page, or
