Well, CVS comes bundled with my OS but it seems there are still savages out
there that need to download and install it for their hopelessly inferior
Plus, if the checkers-in would agree that they'd tag a release with "TESTED"
when they'd at least built the VM and ran some basic (predefined?) test set,
my cron job could fetch that version and put it up for download as
"latest-tested.tar.gz" without having to start long explanations about CVS
Anyway, it was just an offer, so everyone is free to refuse :-)
(Plus, I like tim's notion that you could do all this from within Squeak with
the sockets-based CVS client much better than any fiddling with tarballs...)
