I happened to have access to two Redhat-boxes of different age:

    cvs version    Redhat binary date    "no comparison ..." warning
    -----------    ------------------    ---------------------------
    1.10.5         Mar 21  1999          yes
    1.11.2         Jan 25  2003          no

I thought of trying to nail down what version in between this changed,
but was surprised by one thing: I couldn't find any old "historic"
source code packages of CVS. Am I "blind" or is it really that hard ?
