  mod_perl_cvs - Access to the mod_perl CVS development tree
  
  <P>
  <HR>
  <H1><A NAME="DESCRIPTION">DESCRIPTION</A></H1>
  <P>
  The mod_perl development tree lives on the same machine as perl.apache.org.
  This tree contains the latest mod_perl bug fixes and developments that have
  not made it to CPAN yet. Welcome to the bleeding edge. 
  
  <P>
  <HR>
  <H1><A NAME="SYNOPSIS">SYNOPSIS</A></H1>
  <P>
  Just as cvs access to the Apache development tree, the mod_perl code pulled
  from cvs is not guaranteed to do anything, especially not compile or work.
  But, that's exactly why we are using cvs, so everyone has access the latest
  version and can help see to it that mod_perl does compile and work on all
  platforms, with the various versions and configurations of Perl and Apache.
  Patches are always welcome, simply testing the latest snapshots is just as,
  if not more helpful. When you build mod_perl, running 'make test_report'
  will send a message to the <EM>modperl-cvs@apache.org</EM> list, which is the
same place cvs commit logs and diffs are mailed to. The
  message sent by test_report includes the output of 'make test', plus
  version and configuration information for your Perl and Apache.
  
  <P>
  Here are the several ways to access the cvs tree.
  
  <DL>
  <DT><STRONG><A NAME="item_cvsup">cvsup</A></STRONG><DD>
  <P>
  Cvsup has come out of the FreeBSD group. It's a client/server beast that
  offers an efficient way to sync collections of files over the net, and it
  is very CVS aware, allowing syncronisation of repositories or checked out
  files using the cvs deltas to bring the client side files up to date with
  minimal data transfer.
  
  <P>
  For a FreeBSD cvsup client see:
