Mea Culpa - I use the version distributed by Eridani Star Systems, and
this includes all official Red Hat updates up to when the CD was
ordered. However, in this case, he's redone the RPM's and split out a
CVS-contrib RPM with the contrib scripts in it. Since I don't have that
installed, naturally I couldn't find the script in question.

Incidentally, it's cvs-1.11.1p1 that's installed here, obtained that way.

Many thanks. I'll have a look at it when I get back from work this

Best wishes from Riley.
