Much more convenient.  I can see that CD being passed around the country.

Below is my cvs-supfile.  The sup directory goes wherever base points.  I
use a non-standard setting, for hysterical raisins.  Within sup there is
a directory per collection, with a checkouts file therein.  I'm not sure
where I gleaned the information about gnats and www from.

data is the www collection - a copy of much of what lies under  Especially useful for an up to date copy of the
handbook (8-)

gnats is the pr collection, most conveniently viewed with tkgnats.

# Defaults that apply to all the collections
*default base=/home/cvsup 
*default prefix=/home/ncvs
*default release=cvs
*default delete use-rel-suffix
*default compress

## Main Source Tree.

## Ports Collection.

## Documentation

# pr database
gnats release=current

# web pages
www release=current

No - I've either misconfigured something or not configured it.  Mutt
probably.  Thanks for pointing this out.

I've had this email address for a long time.  It must be in every spam
database.  For me, it is too late to hide.
