CVS-1.6-1 uploaded

I'm not a CVS user myself, so this hasn't really had any testing.
I'd appreciate it if CVS users would let me know of any packaging
problems.  CVS problem reports should go directly to the upstream
maintainers, using the cvsbug(8) tool provided in the package.

Source: cvs
Binary: cvs 
Version: 1.6-1
 cvs: Concurrent Versions System -- an RCS extension
Priority: Low
        Changes from 1.5 to 1.6:
        * Del updated the man page to include all of the new features
          of CVS 1.6.
        * "cvs tag" now supports a "-r | -D" option for tagging an already
          tagged revision / specific revision of a file.
        * There is a "taginfo" file in CVSROOT that supports filtering and
          recording of tag operations.
        * Long options support added, including --help and --version options.
        * "cvs release" no longer cares whether or not the directory being
          released has an entry in the `modules' file.
        * The modules file now takes a -e option which is used instead of -o
          for "cvs export".  If your modules file has a -o option which you want
          to be used for "cvs export", change it to specify -e as well as -o.
        * "cvs export" now takes a -k option to set RCS keyword expansion.
          This way you can export binary files.  If you want the old behavior,
          you need to specify -kv.
        * "cvs update", "cvs rdiff", "cvs checkout", "cvs import", "cvs
          release", "cvs rtag", and "cvs tag" used to take -q and -Q options
          after the command name (e.g. "cvs update -q").  This was confusing
          because other commands, such as "cvs ci", did not.  So the options
          after the command name have been removed and you must now specify, for
          example, "cvs -q update", which has been supported since CVS 1.3.
        * New "wrappers" feature.  This allows you to set a hook which
          transforms files on their way in and out of cvs (apparently on the
          NeXT there is some particular usefulness in tarring things up in the
          repository).  It also allows you to declare files as merge-by-copy
          which means that instead of trying to merge the file, CVS will merely
          copy the new version.  There is a CVSROOT/cvswrappers file and an
          optionsl ~/.cvswrappers file to support this feature.
        * You can set CVSROOT to user@host:dir, not just host:dir, if your
          username on the server host is different than on the client host.
        * VISUAL is accepted as well as EDITOR.
        * $CVSROOT is expanded in *info files.
