And for developers, CVSup is also really nice: You can mirror the complete CVS
repository itself via CVSup in high speed, too. I use this to always have a
local CVS repository copy available. This simplifies development
_dramatically_ because you can easily branch, do "cvs diff" in high speed,
etc. I think CVSup is a must for developers...

The only drawback is that CVSup is written in Modula-3 (and thus not easy to
build yourself) and not available in binary form for all platforms. But beside
this, as Marc tries to mention here, CVSup is great.
