No problem.  I often had a lot of my share of, pardon the phrase,
'stupid moments' that when you look again and wait a minute longer it
becomes apparent.

You need a cvsyncd, doesn't replace cvsupd or communicate with it.  One
of the most neat things is that it will show you a list of all
repositories/collections it has to offer if you ask the remote server.

I prefer it over cvsup nowadays.
