This all seems rather odd. I assume you took the rmail-mbox-branch
(With some extra changes? It's unclear...), extracted the files that
actually differed from the trunk, and installed them into the trunk as
pmail*. Fair enough, this might indeed make it easier for people to
try out.

I don't see why you wouldn't just take the existing ChangeLog from
that branch and install as ChangeLog.pmail, rather than instead
creating two odd directories with CVS info that I doubt anyone will
ever read...

But I don't use rmail, so my opinion's irrelevant. :)
