Should I infer from the complete lack of responses over the last 5 days
that my only option is to delete the distribution directory in the repository itself, and start over with the current version?

Here's exactly what I did:

cd ~/public/3rdParty/java/saxon

Note that the Saxon distribution does not adhere to convention: its
.zip file includes the distribution files and subdirectories at the top
level, not within a ./saxonb8-4 directory.

cvs import -ko -m "Import of Saxon-B 8.4" \
public/3rdParty/java/saxon SOURCEFORGE_DIST SAXON_B_8_4

cvs checkout -jSAXON_B_8_3 -jSAXON_B_8_4 public/3rdParty/java/saxon
