Thanks, but I am not sure I understand the difference.

David means that the current state of the source tree in the
`EMACS_22_BASE' branch is not finalized for a release, and there may
very well be several commits *in* the branch before the "head of the
branch" is considered release-quality.

Lennart, I see that elsethread, people have helped you with the -r
option of cvs(1) for checking out from the branch (instead of the main
CVS "HEAD" branch).  If that is not enough, or if you need help with the
`EMACS_22_BASE' branch and the necessary CVS options to make good use of
it, please feel free to ask me.  I've been using CVS extensively for
more than 10 years now, so please consider this an offer for a helping
hand whenever you are intrigued by the way CVS works.

Guys, there's no need for lengthy, flame-like threads.  I'm sure we all
have better ways to spend our time.  Lennart had a question about CVS
usage, we answered it.  I am surprised this thread is still going after
so many days!

Thanks Giorgos. I appreciate your kindness and will remember your offer.
