No, I've not explored in that depth yet: we are still deciding whether
an apparent lack of non-Windows clients is enough to make us make do
with CVS for the time being. But you point out that such a
perception is wrong. Thank you. I'm significantly further forward
than I was.

was on completely the wrong track.

then a link to this would be good, IMHO, because having looked in
the FAQ for the GUI I'd heard of, read that there wasn't anything
similar, I concluded that such a search would be pointless.

I was thinking of much broader brushstrokes than that.

I wouldn't want to create a maintenance nightmare, but the above
link would suffice to meed the needs of people doing things in the
order I just did.

Agreed. Thank you.
