1.1 didn't get an installer for quite a while after its release, and i

a very interesting, but unspecific version control system that exports
to CVS, this means that there are no tags to efficiently let you
checkout an older version of the entire tree, you can inspect the

to just deletes files which are moved/renamed or deleted, rather then
moving them to a cvs attic, i may be wrong on this, it just appears so
since whenever they remove/move/rename a file cvs just reports that
`it no longer exists in the repository' instead of `is no longer
