None of this, however, should change one other thing we should be doing --
including the pre-built binaries with the binary *distribution* of Tomcat 3.2.
This is a task that can be handled by the person who assembles the
distribution, totally independently of whether the binaries are in CVS or not.

Yep.  This was the use case that convinced me Sam was right :-).

(For those who don't know, the web pages of the Jakarta web site are generated
from input files that end in ".htsrc" -- previously we had both "source" and
"generated" versions of all the pages in CVS, and it was a total nightmare.)
