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.

It probably doesn't handle arbitrary tags well, like the RCS file spec defines. CVS recently (in 1.12.11 or so) added the commitid: field to be able to group revisions of one commit together.

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,

I don't think so. We still need cvsupd, which needs ezm3. So okay, the users don't have the hassle with cvsup anymore, but the servers do.
