Hi Carl,

I would be glad if you send the grasscvstags.html page improved/updated
to me (either html or plain text pieces). I know that it is still
confusing (and I know that I prefer not to have branches in grass51/),
but I need assistance to get grasscvstags.html really useful.

If you don't mind, send some modifications,
