Stephen - thanks for the invitation to read further down the page. :-)
I feel pretty strongly that after more than a year of using hg we
should declare victory, pull the plug on CVS for 21.5 and move on.
That means, IMO, we should stop syncing 21.5 back to CVS and
(regardless) stop telling people that 21.5 can be found in CVS.
I'd also like to see us move the packages to hg, but that's another story.
In order to move the discussion forward, I'll generate a more
comprehensive patch removing references to fetching 21.5 from CVS.
