As an aside, I've been meaning to script up a process for mirrors to
keep cvs/cvsup current, whereby the commit emails trigger a cvsup from
the master of the updated module as often but not more than :20 minutes
or so, then maybe a full sync every 24 hrs for sanity.

But no being my primary OS, and needing to make my first cvsupd mirror
and a few other elements (including unrelated commitments), I've not
moved forward on this. I'm stuck where I create cvsupd config files,
couldn't those just be included in cvs where they can be used directly?
(ATM I forget the default location)

I'd also considered triggering a module rsync from leaf for my own local
cvs repository copy... but that would require compiling rsync there....

Is there a better way to go about this (low latency, low bandwidth,
current cvs/cvsupd mirrors)? Doesn't FBSD or OBSD have a scheme for
mailing patches when they are committed, and scripts to apply?
