CVS is not a GNU project -- is the official home of CVS. 
I'm not sure why the tar files on and are
different, the file on seems to be a preliminary version. 
The only difference I see is that the documentation in the tar file from claims to be for CVS rather than CVS 1.11.2; the

Unfortunately, the FSF has a policy that requires bug report lists to be
open to posting from the general public.  Unless someone volunteers to
