Try "cvs co -c". This will give you a list of all the current modules in
the cvs.

Um, as a slackware (and now stampede) guy in a world that is increasingly
RH or Debian, I have found the "alien" utility to be a great boon. It will
convert rpm<->deb<->tgz nicely. BTW, would anyone mind if I checked in
stuff to build .slp archives into the CVS? I noticed the .rpm stuff, and
since .slp (Stampede Linux Package) is basically a souped-up (and still
tar-compatible!) tarball with dependencies, it wouldn't take much room.
