why the name change?
I see http://pkgsrc.se/wip/csup is that site available by
anon cvs? ...oh I guess it isn't a repo.
Another question relating to the original post, to
update an existing cvs checkout we can use
cd /usr/pkgsrc && cvs -q upd -dP
to get an initial checkout, or change revision of an
existing checkout, we can use
cd /usr && cvs -qd $CVSROOT co -r pkgsrc-2006Q1 -AP pkgsrc
however, we can only reliably checkout newer
revisions; to move backward, we should checkout the
entire tree in an empty directory (eg to try a HEAD
build, then go back). Is that correct?
