Oh yea--I almost forgot. :-)
I've needed to use these revisions in a historical, archivist sense, and
I suppose you could say that I've "needed" them on many occasions just
in the past few months.
There are other, superior SCM systems to CVS out there which are better
suited to reporting mechanisms, and converting from a broken CVS
repository is slightly more difficult than converting from a clean one.
Tracking changes in NetBSD is easier once the CVS repository is
converted and mining historical statistics, or other forms of
information, is simpler too.
