For those interested in the GNU Arch revision control software, I've
been playing around with cscvs [1]_, a Python cvs-to-tla gateway
application.  I imported the entire cvs trunk into GNU Arch, but ran
into a problem with signed v.s. unsigned archives.  With 918 changesets,
I didn't want to have to type in my gpg passphrase each time.  So, I've
also been playing around with gpg-agent, found in the gnupg development
branch.  I'm happy to say it works well with even the older 1.2.x series
of gpg clients with the "use-agent" command-line switch or config file
option.  Note, you also need a pinentry agent installed to collect the
PIN or passphrase.  I haven't gotten the pinentry-curses app to work
yet, but pinentry-gtk-2 works beautifully, even over an ssh-tunnel via

So, I'll be signing my copy of the cvs trunk archive and mirroring it to
my personal website later this week (tonight maybe).  I'll update you on
the location when it gets mirrored.
