I, on the other hand, keep a local subversion branch with the Emacs
sources unchanged, in file:///svnroot/emacs/branches/gnu/.  Any changes
*I* make are made to file:///svnroot/emacs/trunk/, so when I need a
clean copy of the source tree, I just remove the checkout of /trunk and
check it out again.

No serious build problems so far :)

How do the people who work with the repository keep up to date their
sources?  Is there a way to actually _mirror_ the CVS changes, like
CVSup or similar?
