I just checked in the CVS repository using the web interface at
and it appears you have the correct versions of the files. As to why
the devfs.rules is (an apparently) earlier version, I don't know. You
could try browsing the CVS repository if you really want to know. :-)
Please do not CC me on replies, I read the list and don't need the dupes.
