I find that it works very well on FBSD, but on DF it chokes
with a 'protocol error' each time it finds a file which needs
updating.  Do you get better results?

Maxime Henrion, the principal author/maintainer of csup, tells
me that this is because DF uses a different version of CVS.  He
said that he had a good idea of how to update csup for DF, and
that he was going to do a new release very soon.

Unfortunately this was months ago, so I just emailed him again
last week to ask about his progress.  So far he hasn't answered.

I think csup is the logical way for DF to go, since all of the
really hard work is already done.  Just a little nudge by the
right influential person might get Maxime interested again,
