The CVS update was apparently not run on Nov 30.  I doubt this was a
mail problem, since when I ran sup on Nov 30, there were no changed
files at all.

Dec-1 and Dec-2 worked for me, although there were some small
problems.  I posted patches to fix those problems, and they have since
been fixed.  I am currently compiling Dec-4, which seems to be going
smoothly so far.

I have considered the possibility of modifying sup to make backup
files automatically, and then generating my own patches for each day.
Then I could send patches to people who want them.  No guarantees that
I will do it any time soon though.
