This came across another list I'm on, but it's clearly relevent
to CVS :-) Some people might find it useful.  I haven't tried it
myself; it just looks intriguing.  Here's a link to the
"overview" file from its documentation:

> Static websites have a number of advantages over dynamically built
> sites, but one of the disadvantages is being able to schedule deployment
> of new content at arbitrary times.
> Cvs-Brancher is designed to address this issue by making it
> straightforward to branch a CVS tree and schedule a merge and rebuild
> using 'at'.
> An example for use of this is for posting press releases and other
> assorted website changes at 5am west coast time, to co-incide with start
> of business east coast time.  This was the primary motivation for
> writing it.
> The advantage of doing a branch/merge is that regular maintenance can go
> on while the scheduled release is assembled and tested.  Cvs-Brancher
> provides options to control what actions it should take in case of merge
> errors.
> While intended for CVS-based websites that use a build tool such as
> ttree, it is implemented generically and may have non-web uses, such as
> deploying cfengine-based system config changes, etc.

When I came back around from the dark side, there in front of me would
be the landing area where the crew was, and the Earth, all in the view
of my window. I couldn't help but think that there in front of me was
all of humanity, except me.
