Hello Conrad,

unfortunately, Apple supplies cvs 1.10 with the development tools. Worse yet, any new installation - even of the latest devtools - will revert your cvs installation to 1.10. Apple is aware of this, but as of my last correspondence sees no reason to change this behavior.

As to cvs binaries, I think cvs compiles very painlessly on OS X. IMHO, peope who use cvs should be able to use the command line interface of OS X sufficiently to enter ./configure, make and sudo make install.

My personal opinion is, that a script to perform these steps might be a better approach to help OS X users. That nonwithstanding, thanks for the offer.

I have a Mac PowerBook G4 on loan with the base MacOS X 10.3.7
and Apple supplied tools.  In that there is CVS version 1.10
that seems very old too me.

I have compiled CVS versions:


for this machine and want to know if there is any demand for
posting them to "" download pages.

The uname data for this machine is:

        Darwin Kernel Version 7.7.0: Sun Nov  7 16:06:51 PST 2004;
        Power Macintosh powerpc
