Good stuff Philippe

I don't know if you're familiar with this or not, but CVS has something 
called "tags"

A "tag" in CVS is a snapshots of all the files in time.  It would 
alleviate the need for all the diff's and tarballs you've been worrying 


Tags are great for milestones (such as software releases) as well as 
before and after major changes.  Typically before a major change 
affecting many files is done, the tree will be tagged like 
"majorchangename_PRE" and after done, "majorchangename_POST"
