Announcing the release of GNU CSSC 1.0.1

I'm happy to announce the release of GNU CSSC, version 1.0.1.

CSSC ("Compatibly Stupid Source Control") is the GNU project's
replacement for the traditional Unix SCCS suite.  It aims for full
compatibility, including precise nuances of behaviour, support for all
command-line options, and in most cases bug-for-bug compatibility.
CSSC comes with an extensive automated test suite.

If you are currently using SCCS to do version control of software, you
should be able to just drop in CSSC, even for example if you have a
large number of shell scripts which are layered on top of SCCS and
depend on it.  This should allow you to develop on and for the
GNU/Linux platform if your source code exists only in an SCCS
repository.  CSSC also allows you to migrate to a more modern version
control system (such as CVS, perhaps).

You can download GNU CSSC from
