Apologies.
I do know what CVS is, but misunderstood that you were refering to
a general bugzilla CVS.

I'm certainly happy to help in any way I can.
I guess in this case it would have been best
if there had been a simple Help file at the bugzilla site.

I'm currently trying to work out why remote use of CUPS
seems to have ceased to work since I went over to FC-4.
I must look around and see if there is a simple CUPS howto
(I certainly don't think the official CUPS documentation
could be described in that way.)
If I don't find any such HOWTO I shall certainly pen a few words.
