As a new committer try to learn the ropes about how
to do a repo copy, I found the following text in the
committers guide to be confusing, i.e. why does the "CVS Meister" 
link point to "conventions"?

dwhite@ tried to explain to me what a "CVS Meister" was,
and how it was different from a "Repo meister", since
you are not supposed to ask a "Repo meister" to do
a repo-copy, but it is OK to ask a "CVS Meister"
to do a repo copy.

In my opinion, the following small tweak to this
page clarifies things a bit, by directing the
user to various e-mail addresses that are responsible for
different parts of the repository.
