Didn't know there was a /pub/sword/raw/beta :)  But speaking of... Did
the text for MHC Complete ever finish getting scanned?  I'm really
looking forward to that one.  Especially after this compression code is
working! :)

Surely (Don't call me Shirley!)

$ cd ~/src
$ export CVSROOT=:pserver:chrislit@cvs.crosswire.org:/usr/local/cvsroot
$ cvs login
Password: *******
### -z3 = use compression; co = checkout
$ cvs -z3 co sword
$ cd sword
[make changes anywhere in the tree]
[Edit ChangeLog-- just add to the top following suite]
$ cd ~/src/sword
$ cvs commit
[fill in comments when it asks.  I usually just :e Changelog grab my
comments :e # and paste :wq ]

That's it.

You couldn't add files (
$ cvs add mynewfile.cpp
) because you asked me to remove you from the writers list a few years
back! :)  You're back in /usr/local/cvsroot/CVSROOT/passwd now.  Let me
know if you have any troubles.

Thanks for all the cool new stuff!

PS.  The lexicon write stuff should work much better now.  I think
there's still trouble when trying to delete the last entry in the file.
