Official sources vs. RCVS

I seem to recall that the Renegade project was created specifically for the
reason that the official developers of CVS were unwilling to work with
Noel and others who needed various bug fixes and features.  At that time,
(a couple of years ago) the official developers were unresponsive to the
point of even failing to acknowledge receipt of bug reports initiated by
send-pr.

Should your statement be interpreted to mean that the official developers
are now more receptive to such "market-driven" forces?

No, it hasn't been checked in.  And as long as Noel persists in working
in his own little world on SourceForge instead of working with the
official source and developers, it's likely to stay that way.  I don't
think any of the CVS developers have either the time or the inclination
to try to figure out what all he's changed and how many of those changes
make sense to put into the official version, merge the changes with the
current version, make up test cases to ensure they work right now and in
the future, and update the documentation to match.
