Seems that those (like me) concerned about 9.1 release branch activity 
not having been exported to CVS, requiring moving to SVN and abandoning 
c*sup source updating 'all of a sudden', can relax migration schedules a 
bit, for now .. though it's been a good 'gee-up' for me, at least.

Probably worth mentioning that this only ever affected RELENG_9_1, ie 
9.1 BETAs and RCs, not RELENG_9 (ie 9-STABLE) sources.

Thanks Bjoern!

cheers, Ian

RELENG_9_1 is now exported the CVS as well and will be for as long as
things will be exported to CVS.   It will take another few hours to
get near your local mirror as they'll all be chewing on each other the
next 12 hours.  Enjoy!

Any further discussions on src export I'll leave to other people
wearing hats.
