Interesting -- this sounds like almost exactly the time that Lucid Emacs
started with CVS. [at least, I assume so -- Lucid Emacs was started around
April 1991 and probably used CVS from the beginning, since they had multiple
programmers and were using CVS a year or two later when Jamie was running
The existing CVS tree in XEmacs dates from late 1996, but when I worked on
Lucid Emacs at Sun in 1993, they were using TeamWare, and when at Amdahl, it
was ClearCase. [both of which blow CVS out of the water! Yuck!]
