Yes, this was a snapshot of CVS with Eron's code added. I didn't see a
real reason to delete these, I'll be in CA helping make sure the demo goes
off well and it might be rather handy to have these files in place.

Right, but as you mentioned this should not be done before the demo. Also
note one of the biggest drawbacks of CVS is that it doesn't have a
mechanism to move trees/files around.

Do I hear you volunteering for this?!? :)

Have to check this in CVS, I don't believe I touched it.

Sure. Just go to:

This has the CVS commands specific to our project. The ones you want are:

cvs login
cvs -z3 co

where "modulename" is "."
