I had thought "sup" was updated every morning when the daily tarball
is created. Maybe not. What version of is sup serving?

"anoncvs" is way better than "sup", and not only because it's updated
more frequently. The most important advantage for this sort of
problem, is that you can easily travel back in time to a day or two
_before_ the break. Plus you get automatic merging of local changes,
and commit logs on tap.
