Now I know that there is no "Stable" version of 5.x as yet, but I wondered what it is that the supfiles located at /usr/share/examples/cvsup should be for what I want to do.

Thanks for that link.., I missed that.

So should I change the *standard-supfile* to read:

Or, should I make the amendments to *stable-supfile*? Or does it not matter in this case?

Thanks again for taking the time to respond.
