"severely annoying tendency to not be up to date"?
I don't know, this has been the case for the last ~4 weeks (since I need
cvsup and this has been broken recently), but before it should have been
very reliably working AFAICT.

Ouch, sorry!

Problem is that I was VERY busy before my short vacation (I'm writing this
from Leiden, NL, BTW...), so I couldn't properly get this >= medium-difficult
issue (cvsup is a non-C program with support issues, and the C replacement
isn't up to the task yet) fixed in time.

I had thought about getting it removed from the page myself, but didn't
remember it properly (huge marriage preparation, very important project
deadline, new project requests, buying new home, ...).

I'd say remove it immediately and then reactivate it after it's obvious that
I managed to get it working properly reliably again.
