Dimi, I don't know if this page is one of the CVS bits you want to get
IMO we shouldn't be asking people to download 40M files just to trace a
regression - much better just to use cvs.winehq.
On dialup, the download will take 2 1/2 hrs - it is hard to see a
succession of little trips to cvs.winehq adding up to anything like
that. On broadband the situation is proportionally better, of course,
but is the cvs server really so overloaded ?
Unless anyone objects, I'll submit a patch removing this suggestion to
make a huge download.
+ "wine-cvsdirs" should be "full-cvs"
+ Unnecessary 'cd'
