I am cvsup'ing NetBSD sources as follows

  #*default host=
  *default base=/n0/CVSUP/netbsd-control
  *default prefix=/n0/CVSUP/netbsd-repo
  *default release=cvs 
  *default delete use-rel-suffix
  *default umask=2

  *default compress


I find the modules file to be out of sync with what is in my cvsup'd
repository in the area of cryptosrc-foo.  In the repository I get

Compared to, cryptosrc-intl is
extra and htdocs and othersrc are missing.  It seems that htdocs and
othersrc are not "part of NetBSD", so that part makes sense.

The CVSROOT/modules file contains definitions for a number of
components, and a src module that includes base, gnu, share and sys.
There is also a src-crypto-intl and src-crypto-all.  But the latter
include components that are not defined (_cryptosrc-us-cmp and

The page
talks about a crypto-intl module as well.

The page
says to use 'src', and doesn't mention cryptosrc-intl.

So, I think it would be nice for there to be comments in
CVSROOT/modules that explain what modules should be used.

For now, I assume the answer is

  cryptosrc-intl is of historic interest only, and should be ignored

  the lines in modules that refer to cryptosrc-* should be ignored

  to get sources, check out 'src'

but I'd appreciate comments from those in the know.
