Thanks, I applied these changes to the main branch in the archive.

In the future, please submit a ChangeLog entry along with your patches.
I added this one this time:

2005-05-05  Keith Goodman  <address@hidden>

        * ov-usr-fcn.cc (Fnargout, Fnargin): Update doc strings.
        * help.cc (keywords): Update doc strings for varargin, varargout.

The @seealso{} macro appends a period, so there is no need to include
one in the argument to the macro.

If your patch has long lines and is likely to be corrupted by a
mailer along the way, please send it as an attachment.

I'm not sure precisely what this means, but I wouldn't worry much
about it.  My guess is that locking is not used when you access the
achive in read-only mode, so it is possible that an update will happen
while you are updating and that you will end up with some inconsistent
files.  But if that happens, I think you can fix it by updating again.

The publicly accessible CVS archive is just a mirror of the real
archive that is updated using rsync over a fast connection, so I would
guess that the chances of an anonymous checkout being corrupted are
relatively small.  If you do happen to notice a problem and it happens
often, then please report it.
