I recently threw away my repository and cvsupped a fresh one - over 7
hours with both channels of an ISDN link going, which may give you an
idea as to how long it would take.  This didn't cure my "can't build

As for repository size:

15754   CVSROOT
60674   data
75239   doc
146907  gnats
301749  ports
768028  src

I've not got a burner, but you (and anyone else) are welcome to contact
me and arrange to bring a machine here (Stoke-on-Trent) to copy my
repository via my network.  I use 100 Mb/s, but one machine has a 10
Mb/s card in it too.

The main problem is my availability - I spend too much time at work (8-(
I have some hopes of getting some Sunday afternoons off.
