Some questions on CVS upgrade

Which version?
I'd like to upgrade to the latest stable cvs release for Linux.  The
downloads page on (Linux-RPMS-i386) contains 2 links - a
cvs-1.11.17-1.i386.rpm file and a link to a mirror site.  The mirror site
( has cvs-1.11.18-1.i386.rpm posted
there.  It seems to have been updated on Nov. 15, 2004.  I'd rather go with
the 1.11.18 release, but since its not on itself, I am a bit
anxious.  A recommendation either way would be very helpful.

How to upgrade?
I have not been able to find much information about upgrading.  I promise to
collect all information I can get, add it to the Readme and submit it to
Derek for review.  Is replacing the cvs executable on the server enough?
I'll have my users log off cvs, but is there anything else I should do
before the upgrade with regard to cvs processes? We will be moving from
1.11.1p1 to 1.11.17.  Any gotchas that I should inform the users about?

Thanks in advance,
