Hey, guys, let's say it one more time: Perforce IS NOT CVS.  Perforce
is a very capable and sophisticated change management system which
requires a very different working method to CVS. You cannot skip between 
and expect things to work identically.

We have all, I think, agreed that TeX Live should switch to a public CVS 
at the end of this cycle. We also, I think, agree that we should not do 
this changeover

So, be patient. CVS is coming. And I'll hate it :-}
