Adam, we *do* appreciate your efforts.  Besides, 5% of 600+ is at least
30 people, and we definitely want you on that list!  Don't take any
previous comments as directed at anyone in particular, I just wanted to
make Karsten feel better. :-)

Just because you don't grasp CVS fully right now, doesn't mean you can't
learn.  I was very tentative about it when I joined at first, and now
it's old hat.  People are available to help you -- that's why we hang
around on Freenode IRC at #fedora-docs.  If you'd rather drop mail to
this list, we can help you there too.

If you'd like to learn more about CVS, here's a couple places to start:
