Okay, crying uncle..  trying to follow the instructions found here:

And not having any joy in trying to clone the cvs repository.  The
instructions have some obvious mistakes but after fixing them up and
setting up a file named "xorg.up" with:

  *default release=cvs base=/home/sean/xorgcvsup
  *default delete use-rel-suffix compress

And trying  "cvsup xorg.up", the following error comes up:

  Connected to
  Server message: Collection "xorg" release "cvs" is not available here
  Skipping collection xorg/cvs
  Finished successfully

Anyone know what the proper collection and release values should be
to grab the xorg xserver repo?   Alternatively, is there an easier way 
to get a copy without having to use cvsup?


P.S. the page shows both a "xorg" and "xserver"
     repository; what's the difference between these two?
