We could just distribute the CVS tree and write a front-end utility in csh or sh that we distribute along with the rest of the system to do the nitty gritty work of actually checking something out into /usr/src. In fact, I think that would be preferable.NetBSD is distributed on pure CVS, anything else is a convenience. However, because CVS is so impressively bad for initial checkouts, they recommend downloading the rather small source and pkgsrc tarballs, and only using CVS for actual updates. This could work for DragonFly too, with the added bonus of pre-distributed cvs dotfiles or shell aliases. Maybe 'make update' (or whatever it is) could be wired to work that way too.
