I don't think you get off that easy :) Dean provided the message-IDs
or PR numbers of all the patches, you now have go through the archives
and find them.

Untrue. At least, to some degree. The files are copies of the apache
tree, so they do contain all the log data.. However, they're in
different places. So you can checkout the APACHE_1_2_x branch, it just
won't work.

Are we sure we want to reorganize the tree by moving the RCS files?
cvs delete/add, while it does erase the log messages, at least lets
you keep the historical branches intact.

Oh, and btw, Paul... you're going to have to redo apachen or
something, I think, when we decide to move it over to apache, because
it's out of date with relationship to the current tree. But I assume
you know that.
