Snapshots are A Good Thing, but someone will have to volunteer to do
the job of either generating them manually or (preferably) automating
their generation on gnu.org machines.  If no one volunteers, snapshots
will remain a pipe dream, and we cannot count on them to solve any

Issues that need IMHO to be addressed (until and unless there are

  - what do we offer users of non-Posix platforms who use CVS?

    installed on the machines where the CVS version is built are
    compatible between all the developers?
