Sure - cvs. It is *much* more convenient (For one thing, you can update
only a single directory if you're in a hurry and looking for something
specific. Also, you can compare various versions of files with cvs diff).
For some reason, the FAQ on the website still talks about CVS only as a
local method of controlling the source you get via sup (which is a totally
different subject, and probably confuses a lot of beginners). There's a
rehash of some instructions I sent to the list for review several months
(can we get this or something similar on the official web pages?)
