If you're not willing to use the same tools (which work on every platform)
as the rest of the Apache developers, don't be surprised if they are
unwilling to help you.  We are not here to serve you.

Also, you don't have to use CVS to get access to the current code tree.
You can use the source code browser at

you can download 6-hour-old snapshots from

you can also use rsync.  You have a wealth of options, and to actually
submit a patch to us, all you need to use is "diff".

Of course, telling us what this superior system is might also help - if
it's really superior, maybe we should all switch to it.  Mind sharing
with us what it is?
