I do wish to choose a better tool, but it doesn't
exists. They say if you wanna do something right, you
have to do it yourself.

I don't wanna merge binary files, and I'm not likely
to modify them in my module (project). I just want cvs
to carry them along with the sources

 Well what can I do ? It happends that my project (a
 web site) includes binary files...

Well I will..., but I still have a Linux server
carring the repository and the release and 2 Windows
workstations where I work
