dear all,

it's high time that i learn how to use cvs.  the man page is hopeless, and
the CVS howto is a duplicate of the CVS-RCS howto, which is mostly a bunch
of scripts to convert RCS stuff to CVS (it looks like it anyway).  i think

me?  something in the spirit of my own linux tutorials, located at:
