    Thanks for the response.  I guess I'm just a little naive when it
    comes to the development process of CVS.  I assumed that any sort of
    improvement to the distribution would be welcome.  In my involvement
    in open source projects in the past, the maintainers of the projects
    have been very receptive and pleased to receive code, which they
    didn't have to write.

    I see a problem with the CVS code as distributed.  That is, it has
    a single csh script which is both slow and makes the CVS code-base
    depend on an additional unix "utility" when it doesn't have to.
    I believe I addressed both of these problems with my re-write of the
    script in perl.  I've announced it on the info-cvs list (a couple
    of times now) and I'd like to make it available via FTP in the CVS
    distribution if I could just get some cooperation from you, Derek or
    one of the other silent CVS developers.
