OK, I see these changes now. I had to use the cvs update -d command to get the
"unused" directory, just to let you know.

I agree that we should have the team check changes before they are committed.
This implies three things:

1. There is definitely reason to have at least two source tress, one for
"committed" code (stable tree) and one for submitting changes to be evaluated.

2. Someone or some small team must dedicate themselves to evaluating submitted
changes. Otherwise, changes may never be applied to the stable tree.

3. We need a policy for evaluation as well as using CVS in general - standard
arguments to use for the different operations (update, commit, etc) that work
for the GRASS project and its developers - when should we create tags, naming
format for tags, who commits to the stable tree and when, etc.

Unfortunately, I'm new to CVS so I can't make too many suggestions, but I think
we need to address these 3 items and come to some kind of consensus soon.

Just my $0.02 worth.
