I used just -z on the check-in and it seemed to speed it up
considerably. Apparently the default gzip compression level
these days is -6 (the highest) since cpu is now so much cheaper
than network bandwidth. I was actually surprized that it was
faster since already CompressionLevel=3 in the .ssh/config
file is supposed to apply at least level -3 gzip compression
anyway and the -z in the cvs command would seem to implie a
double compression (usually not a good idea).


Running rsync at Savannah I noticed a directory in upload/axiom
called stable containing a file called axiom...tgz. but because
of the time my cvs transaction was taking I interrupted the
download. Is this work in progress? Did you notice my "warning"
about the Savannah file list naming conventions in my previous
message? It took me a while to get things straight when I first
added something to the file section and on reading the
Savannah forum messages I found that this was a very common

BTW, I am glad you did not ask me to upload my current mnt
version of Axiom from here at home (due to my apparent
upload limitations) but I coult do so from my office at work
where there is a T3 connection when or if you ever want.


Finally, what are you plans for including the last 29 as
yet uncompiled modules?
