A new release of cvsps, 2.2b1-1, is now available for download, leaving
2.1-1 as previous.

This is a new upstream release.  Upstream marks it as development rather
than stable, but it has several bug fixes over the previous release that
can aid in converting a CVS repository with branching into a more modern
version control system.  See also the package documentation in
/usr/share/doc/cvsps/.  Upstream changes include:

- add a new line item in the PatchSet output which indicates which
  branches fork off from after this PatchSet.  This is actually
  the only way to correctly indicate the branching.  The 'Ancestor
  Branch' thing is actually broken by design, and is now deprecated.
- sometimes cvs log has a timezone in it (from Ludwig Nussel)
- better buffer size handling

CVSps is a program for generating 'patchset' information from a CVS
repository. A patchset in this case is defined as a set of changes made to
a collection of files, and all committed at the same time (using a single
'cvs commit' command). This information is valuable to seeing the big
picture of the evolution of a cvs project. While cvs tracks revision
information, it is often difficult to see what changes were committed
'atomically' to the repository.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on the
http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your system.
Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick up 'cvsps' from the
'Devel' category.

Note that downloads from cygwin.com aren't allowed due to bandwidth
limitations.  This means that you will need to find a mirror which has
this update, please choose the one nearest to you:

If you want to make a point or ask a question the Cygwin mailing list is
the appropriate place.
