In order to correct some problems apparent inside of cvsweb, this past
weekend we have remerged the various components of the root CVS

In the past, the checkout module 'pgsql' was an alias that merged both
pgsql-server and contrib/earthdistance. The change has eliminated the
alias, and moved pgsql-server back as 'pgsql', while, at the same time,
moved contrib/earthdistance back under pgsql/contrib/earthdistance.

As a result, for those using anoncvs, you will now be required to
re-checkout your source tree, as the paths stored by CVS in CVS/Root
throughout your tree will be wrong.

This was discussed beforehand on -hackers, but it appears that several
using CVS aren't subscribed to that list, so haven't seen the change

Sorry for the inconvience that this has caused ...
