The official repository is on the Internet, but I want to have a local repository for safety and in case I must work offline.

[snipped] Sorry I should have said '$Revision' instead of '$Version'. However, please do not try to teach me how I should use CVS. For one reason or another, people may want to use it, maybe for trivial reasons. I would not lie in bed sleepless because CVSNT removed this feature. However, I do want it. Writing 100 paragraphs about it would not change that. Maybe it is good behaviour not to use this CVS feature. I simply fail to see why it should be removed. Removing any existing features is a crime to existing users. Not to mention that even the CVSNT manual still has examples using this feature and still documents the [-r revision] syntax!
