Sorry, let me try to explain:
 - edge driven would mean that the mere fact of adding an entry to the cvs 
   file (even if the entry is deleted immediately afterward) is enough to 
   trigger a build.  In this case, the person requesting a build can delete 
   the entry right after requesting a "make build".  The key point is that the 
   entry *is added* to the cvs file at some point.
 - state driven would mean that some process parses the file from time to time 
   (aka polling) and builds whatever entries are found in the file at that 
   time.  In this case, the person requesting a build needs to wait for the 
   build system to have at least started the build before removing the entry.
   The key point is that the entry *is* in the cvs file at some point.

Cheers,
					Christian
