Well, if we have no CVS access on any major site,
I propose we use monotone instead. It has the advantage of working
without a central repository: you can continue using it while being
disconnected (example: when on the move with your j820 :-) )
And merge the differences you accumulated when you connect
to another person's repository.

Yes. You can also export from CVS and then import into monotone,
or whichever system we are using.

Neither do I, but they seem to have a nice system to create nicely
trimmed basic installations with all (most) the basic tools.
Nicer than debian if you don't have a large microdrive, I suppose.
(That said, I now DO have a 2GB microdrive - a change from my 32MB CF).

Certainly! Moreover, I'm sure "the best" depends on what we're intending
to do with how much CF.

A student who changes the course of history is probably taking an exam.
