Thank you. (And thank you to Carl K.)

I have had it running the "Test" for a few hours.

The webpage says "Once you have found that your tinderbox is working, you
can change the tree from 'Test' to 'XMonolithic' in"

How do you know the tinderbox is working? How do I know when to change
from "Test" to "XMonolithic"?

I did look at the webpage
but I don't have any idea what this means.

Will it ("Test") stop? Or does it run forever?

Also, the TinderboxWiki webpage says "Once a day ... the entire directory
is deleted and the files checked out fresh".

Is there a way to skip that? I'd rather not download files again and again
... Isn't "cvs up -dP" good enough?
