Thanks for the link.

Of course it's still free software.  Debian were maintaining their own
fork, and had their own copy of the code.  Nothing changed for them and
their code had all the security udpates.

CVSNT supplied it's own rlog for this reason.

That'd be the name of the file at each revision.  If you rename a file
(which CVSNT can do, but CVS cannot) then it's important to know the
name at each revision.  By removing information from the RCS file you
are simply removing information from your repository history - that
information was valuable and cannot be replaced.
