Updating to the latest CVS sounds like a good idea - the current EPICS 
release appears to have an old version (1.3). Is this 
deliberate or has it just been forgotten about? 

Are there any compatability issues in using the latest 
version (CVS 1.7) instead - are the repositories 
compatible - and does that matter?
