Uhh, I'd be extremely un-enthusaistic about moving my Debian CVS
repository off my machine:

1. Flaky access.

2. Loss of accurate history. Cvs-inject will get all the actual releases
into the repository, but intermediate versions and branches will be
lost, as will comments. 

I could probably deal with (1) if I could just tar up my archive and
have put in the central one.

All in all I'd rather just set up anonymous read-only access to my archive...

Or would cvsup be useful here, so the central server could synchronize
with mine?
