[GRASS5] dm and gism in the cvs

Again. Thanks. 

A couple of clarifications. I did a cvs add and commit. I didn't move files.
I did copy them from my local /display directory to my local new /gui/tcltk/
directory before adding them but after adding the new directory to the cvs
(obviously I wouldn't rewrite them). But clearly it didn't work correctly.
I've done this before--recently--with no problems. But I've never done this
many files at one time. It doesn't make much sense to me, but maybe this was
the source of the source of the problem? It would be nice to know WHY the
add/commit didn't work this time so I could avoid a similar problem in the

The files in the tarball I sent you should be the same as those that existed
in the original location. In fact, I simply copied my local versions of the
original directories into a backup directory (i.e., the one that I sent you)
prior to starting the process to add/commit, move/commit. The apparent
mismatch between the new and old locations is moot now in that the new
location is the place everyone should be working with.

Copy tree.tcl was a working file that was not supposed to end up in the cvs.
I deleted it when I did the add/commit to the new location (i.e., it was in
my backup but not the new location). But of course that didn't work right.
So I'm glad you did not add it either.

Thanks again for the emergency help.
