 Looking at the "current, stable, pkgsrc-20xxQy" section of
 more, I'm wondering if I'm misunderstanding the intent of the first
 paragraph, and it's actually describing what's in each of the current,
 stable, and pkgsrc-20xxQy directories?
 If that's the case, then I think this needs to be made more clear.  For
 example, the first sentence of the second paragraph could be replaced
   Each of the `current`, `stable`, and `pkgsrc-20xxQy` directories share
   the same structure.  They each contain a `pkgsrc` directory which
   contains a snapshot of their branch of the CVS repository, which is
   updated regularly.
 But I still think each directory needs a short sentence to say what it
 is too.  For example:
   The `current` directory contains files related to the -current branch
   of the CVS repository.
   The `stable` directory is a symlink to the latest `pkgsrc-20xxQy`
   The `pkgsrc-20xxQy` directories contain files related to the
   -20xxQy branch of the CVS repository.  [Then the sentence about the
   `pkgsrc-20xxQy.tar.gz` file here.]
