Uh, sounds like I'd better have an idea, huh? :)
Hold off for an hour or so while I commit my current changes, which
include a bit of a reorg on the Admin Guide. There will be a separate
file, trouble.sgml, which is the troubleshooting chapter. A bit more
info in it (mostly about pg_options and log messages).

istm that there is not need for a flat file FAQ_CVS, and that our web
site and our html and hardcopy docs can do a better job of showing
that info. I had started cvs.sgml from FAQ_CVS, adding some info about
CVSup culled from mailing list messages. Not done yet, but if FAQ_CVS
has not been updated recently it is bound to be more complete since
afaik FAQ_CVS did not even mention CVSup.
I'm planning on cleaning up some of the markup in cvs.sgml and
deep-sixing the CVS_FAQ.
