Yes, there would not be a change in that - there is no simple way around that with current infrastructure (as fixing that wold mean doing evil hacks around cvs etc.)

The only thing you would gain by using cvsup-master to pull sources is lower lag time between what tinderboxes build and what's in src/ VCS.

Better yes, but that's not a simple configuration change like switching to using cvsup-master is, and unfortunately I have plenty of more interesting projects than changing tinderbox code :-).

PS. for other people not being Peter Jeremy :) - no, I'm not going to consider git or going to consider discussing it - see above :-).
