Ah - OK. Got it now. Maintaining you own local repository, e.g. not just a 
simple src upgrade/download such as I do here for basic updating.

I recently saw something about this, IIRC on the -Current, or possible -
Stable list explaining this. It had something to do with the export from SVN 
back to CVS. I believe the developers are aware of this. Search the archive 
for their comments.
