Hi Michael,

Actually, you probably can get the diffs. The repository was just moved
to the newer site, so tweaking the CVS/Root file
is probably all you need to do. The versions numbers are the same
between the two sites.


The top-level sources module is 'ccvs' which should be the same as
previously under

To checkout the latest top-of-tree use:

 cvs -z3 -d:pserver:address@hidden:/sources/cvs co ccvs

You might then want to look at ccvs/contrib/ to update the
CVS/Root file in your tree.

I suggest you make a backup of your tree before you start
playing with it.
