Does CVS have the ability to write out a clean version of the source 
tree -- i.e. without all the embedded revision info? If not, wouldn't 
we need to write a utility to do such a thing? That is, build a new 
folder structure that contains all the source code directories and 
files (but leaves out the CVS specific ones like CVSROOT), changes file 
names to remove the ending ",v" etc (pretty simple), and remove all the 
revision text inside the files (a bit trickier).

In other words, you can't build from the CVS tree in it's original 
form. How do other projects using CVS handle this? Anyone know?

OpenBeOS. Michael told me my first assignment was to investigate what 
everyone thought of as a good source tree and then make something that 
everyone can live with. So thats what i'm doing. Feel free to e-mail me 
suggestions to my address (iceman@xxxxxxxxxxxx) or to the list. Any 
input would help me revise the current source tree. Thanks.
