Why use CVS when we have a database?   A relational database is much better 
for version control.   

Also, I don't see needing a moderator's clearance.    On a site by & for 
developers, problems will be rare.   Heck, if I didn't want the 
catagorization & searching, I'd suggest using a Wiki.

I do but it needs some straightening out ... I'm running 2 different versions 
of Apache & 3 different versions of Postgres.   And I'd need your help to set 
up cvsup, assuming that we want to use it for developing the app.   It can't 
be that complicated; 1 search screen and 1 add/editing screen, with simple 
login access?
