They have our own integration fixes (Arthur has more details as he works 
on that side), and are tested as a single unit.  Also the cvsnt build 
released there is the latest build with fixes that might not have made 
it through to an oss release yet.  There's also the ebook which is a 
pretty decent installation and configuration guide, SCCI integration 
plugin, Release Manager, and Bugzilla integration.

In general we try to release as much as possible opensource, and our 
changes to other packages are fed back to those projects.. this can lead 
to the idea that we're just bundling existing stuff, but there's much 
more to it than that... a significant amount of Arthur's time is spent 
making TortoiseCVS/WinCVS/WinMerge etc. do the things our customers want 
them to.
