Re: Looking to develop: introduction and tip request
Thank you to everyone who has replied to me. I had just a couple
specific comments regarding this email

No, I meant cvs importing into a local repository those sources acquired
through cvs import (such that one can do one's own tagging (of, say,
successful builds) and quicker reverting, etc). This would be similar in
concept to the recommended way of tracking current NetBSD source: sup the
original and cvs import into a local cvs tree.

Ah. I had written the email after perusing the gnucash site, and nothing
stuck out in my mind as being "Here's the wiki". Many OSS homepages have
a Wiki main subdivision (as in, the main menu of the site contains a
"Wiki" link). I even looked again, and still couldn't find "the wiki"
until I did what you suggested. Though I do often look at the URLs of
pages I view, I must have missed this one. Perhaps a link that would be
more obvious might be in order?
