just on this,
su# cat /usr/src/CVS/Tag

doesn't inspire me with confidence.

I just made up this tag:  netbsd-3-1-RC3
to see if it would work.
It's downloading sources but with this exact tag that
I suggested to it, it seems it's just taken what I made up and
written it in there. Either,

- i fluked the correct tag.

- i still don't know how to find out what i'm downloading.
