Well, both address@hidden and I work for the same employer.
(This may or may not be considered a liason point. :-)

Email to address@hidden would be a place to ask about getting bug
fixes into CVS sources rather than address@hidden

Bug reports for CVS should be submitted via the web to:
https://savannah.nongnu.org/bugs/?func=additem&group=cvs

Note: I was unable to use the
http://berklis.com/~jhs/src/bsd/fixes/FreeBSD/src/gen/contrib/gnu/usr.bin/cvs/cvs.1.REL=ALL.diff
link.

I have updated the cvs 1.11.x documentation to try to clarify things.

Note: cvs 1.12.x is moving toward -r rev:date rather than -r rev -D date,
and CVS clients may use this notation if the servers are at 1.12.x.

        Enjoy!
