I committed a patch to the net/cvsup port to fix the bug where
people's INDEX files were being deleted even though they had them
listed in the "refuse" file.  However, the fix is in the CVSup server,
so you won't benefit from it until your friendly mirror site upgrades.

There is a work-around you can use in the meantime, though.  In your
"refuse" file, simply specify the Attic directory in your entry for
the INDEX file.  I recommend lines like this:


If you do this, your INDEX files should remain unmolested by CVSup
from now on.
