My test (signed) GNU Arch repository of GNATS can be found at  To check out the project,
register the archive like so:

    $ tla register-archive address@hidden \
    $ tla get address@hidden/configs--head--1.0 DESTDIR
    $ cd DESTDIR
    $ tla build-config gnats/cvstrunk/latest
    # After a long time downloading...
    $ cd ./+src/gnats--cvstrunk--1.0

Remember, there are 918 changesets.  That's 918 different tarballs and
supporting metadata files that need to be downloaded.  I would
seriously suggest using a revision library, or perhaps wait until I
can get a few tagged branches made.  I'll be creating a =README file
in the configs project to explain the different branches that get
created over time.

NOTE: The CVS repository is still THE authoritative repository for the
project.  The GNU Arch repository is mainly for my own development and
patch rolling, but feel free to use it and branch off it.

Regarding the DESTDIR above, I tend to organize my working directories
like so:

|-- cvs
|   `-- gnats-trunk
|-- svn
|   `-- WSGIKit
`-- arch
    |-- address@hidden
    |   |-- configs
    |   `-- +src
    |-- address@hidden
    `-- etc..

So, I would specify the DESTDIR as:


Chad Walstrom <address@hidden> 
           assert(expired(knowledge)); /* core dump */
