Subject: cvs package available for test

CVS is the 'concurrent versioning system'. This is the initial port of
cvs to cygwin's new packaging scheme. I've had cvs-1.10 on cygutils for
some time but it didn't follow the package layout rules established here
on cygwin-apps. This version is updated to cvs-1.10.8, and is
dynamically linked to libgdbm.dll.

The package is now available for testing at
   ftp://sourceware.cygnus.com/pub/cygwin/private/cygwin-extras-392/

cvs-1.10.8-1.tar.gz
cvs-1.10.8-1-src.tar.gz

gdbm-1.8.0-1 must be installed.

NOTES:

o cygwin-specific doc /usr/doc/Cygwin/cvs-1.10.8.README
o generic docs in /usr/doc/cvs-1.10.8/*
o source archive already has the cygwin-specific patch applied

o cygwin-specific README and PATCH are stored in the source archive,
under <top>/CYGWIN-PATCHES/* (although the patch has already been
applied to the archive itself).

I ran the 'make check' tests, and of the many hundreds of tests, it
failed only the following:
  - join-readonly-conflict
  - modules3
  - modules4
  - errmsg1
  - binfiles3
  - rcs3
There were several other subtests that failed with a 'Signal 11' error
(!!!) during the mega-test, but re-running those tests individually
succeeded.

I didn't run the following four tests, because they require a remote
repository to which you have write access:
  - pserver
  - server
  - server2
  - client

To run the tests individually, don't type 'make check'. Instead, cd to
<top>/src and type:
  '/bin/sh ./sanity.sh `pwd`/cvs list-of-tests-to-run'

You can find the list of all tests inside sanity.sh starting at line
592.

This list of failures may be scary, but it's no worse than the older
cygwin port of cvs-1.10. I'd appreciate any reports of success or
failure using this version.

BTW, cvs installs into /usr/bin, so if you've got an older version in
/usr/local/bin make sure you're using the right version.
