You mean linux--linus-pre--2.4?  That would be OK.

That would be great.  Feel free to abrowse and take a look around.  There
are not yet any complex interrelationships; base-0 revs are always tags of
others (except for 0.01), though there are some merges back and forth
between pre and mainline versions.

If you're willing to write a script to rename things to the convention
above, I'm willing to run it :-)

I thought this would involve redoing a weeks' worth of tedium, which I don't
want to do unless something better than arch shows up :-)

I'm looking at cscvs now for 2.4 and 2.5 (and 2.6, I hope), so I may just
zap those anyway.  Will see...
