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

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!
