There has been a CHANGE in the on-disk format
of gdbm database files, due to the cygwin-1.3.22--cygwin-1.5.x
32bit--64bit transition.  This affects all programs which
use gdbm -- including cvs.  You MUST update your on-disk
databases immediately after updating to

   cvs-1.11.6-3
   libgdbm4-1.8.3-7

To do this, use the 'convert-gdbm' script included in the
gdbm-1.8.3-7 and newer packages:

   today=`date +%Y%m%d`
   cd ${CVSROOT}/CVSROOT
   cp modules.db modules.db.${today}
   cp val-tags.db val-tags.db.${today}
   convert-gdbm modules.db
   convert-gdbm val-tags.db

(If you have been using the test versions of gdbm and cvs, and have 
already updated your databases, there is no need to do so again)

CVS is the 'Concurrent Versioning System', a widely-used package for 
maintianing revision histories of source code.  This port is based on 
the official cvs-1.11.6 release, and requires that libgdbm4-1.8.3-7 be 
installed as well.

This release is built against the cygwin-1.5.x kernel; it will not work 
with 1.3.22.

CHANGES:

* updated to the latest release
* compiled against cygwin-1.5.2 kernel
* documentation moved to /usr/share/*
