Yes, but some of us pay for every minute we're fetching from CVS...
Perhaps we should make it very clear to people that, *even if you have
the bandwidth*, you don't delete your copy of the CVS sources before
doing a checkout.
(Besides, if you're doing that then why aren't you fetching Jim Pick's
tarball snapshots? They're better compressed than CVS, and it'll save
you and everyone else time...)
Alternatively, I don't suppose anyone has suitably-connected machines
we could use as further anoncvs mirrors? (Especially in Europe ;-)
