Its not, its updated on a regular basis, ie, whenever major updates are done, 
or whenever Peter feels like it, which probably amounts to 1-3 times a week 
at a guess.

Thats understandable, but thats kind of a special situation. The tarballs are 
of course for those who have trouble to get the CVS working, but under a pure 
linux situation I cant see there being any major drama. I would think however 
that there must be a fairly simple operation to get the files from CVS as you 
describe. dos2unix or other apps dont help?
