I thought src CVS is dead (aka read-only)?  My script also watched the
other mentioned files, but I've never acted upon them until now. Would
be nice to have a general policy, which seems to just import them to
all repos (`gcc' and 'binutils-gdb') at the same time. For `src', I
think that commits won't work any longer, though I haven't checked.
Indeed, since some days, I only get GIT-style commit messages for
binutils-git, but nothing that supports the fact of a writeable `src'
repo any longer...
