Hi Tony,

can you let us know in which document exactly you read this :

I want to fix the document. :-)

I think the document where you read that might meant that if you have a 
choice between downloading a file using HTTP or CVS, because the same 
jar is available say on and on, then you 
should choose the HTTP solution. But it does not mean that you can fetch 
CVS files using the get task (or there is something I do not know about 
the get task :-[ ).
