Glen, thanks for the reply. autopoint is part of gettext. The home
site for gettext is here:
Unfortunately I don't see autopoint documented there. I use Gentoo, and
on that autopoint comes from package sys-devel/gettext. All autopoint
does is to extract the gettext source files into your current project.
Since the source files are stored in a CVS archive, it needs to create a
temporary repository to put the CVS files into, then extract them. It
then deletes the temporary repository. So the usage is entirely
transitory, and no one else ever needs to see this temporary repository.
I suppose someone will have to submit a request to the gettext people to
ask them to update the autopoint shell script to become cvs version-aware.
