Can someone please tell Reingold about CVS and how to use
it to access the latest sources on Savannah?  Reingold maintains
the Calendar code in Emacs.

It is unlikely that your changes would have solved the problem because it 
involved some of the underlying astronomical ideas that were not properly 
implemented for the extremes of polar regions, not simple logical errors.

Before I retired (when I was in Urbana), at some point I could no longer 
access the code and because of security concerns the U of I CS dept would not 
install what was needed for me.

Perhaps now things are different.  Where/how to get access to the code?  What 
is CVS?
