The CVS module ``insight'' will check out all of the insight
components.  Sorry to not forward this on earlier.  (unless Jason
already has)

Hi folks!  

The new GDB repository is set up.  If you have a checked out copy of the
GDB repository, you're going to check out a brand new one.  Read this
whole message.

This weekend I merged the GDB repository with the binutils repository
which was already on Sourceware.  For those of you working on both gdb
and binutils, the merging of these two will ease your life considerably.

I treated the binutils repository as the master repository, so whenever
there was overlap between the gdb repository and the binutils repository,
the files from the binutils repository were used.  Binutils and GDB
have not been synchronized/merged in approx six months, so we're going
to have some instability this week.  Cygwin support in binutils is just
plain broken right now. :-/

The following directories from the GDB repository were incorporated in
to the new repository with no changes:  

   dejagnu, expect, gdb, mmalloc, readline, sim, tcl, utils

The following directories from the binutils repository were incorporated
in to the new repository with no changes:

   bfd, config, etc, gas, gprof, include, intl, ld, libiberty, opcodes, texinfo

And all of the top-level files were from binutils as well.

If you have changes in your checked-out tree, and the changes are all
in the directories that came from GDB, you are fine -- do a cvs diff
of your existing tree, check out a new tree and apply the patches.
They'll apply cleanly.

If you have changes in your checked-out tree in the directories from
the binutils repository, you should still do the diff in the old GDB
repository so you have a clear idea of what you changed, but the changes
may not apply cleanly to the binutils version of that directory.  You may
need to do some work to get it applied cleanly.

Most people will have few, or no, changes to their checked out copy of the
GDB repository.  Those people should just remove their checked out copy
and get a new one.  Andrew Cagney suggested that a lot of people will do
this, so I've tarred up pre-checked-out trees using the anoncvs pserver
method -- just download one of these tarfiles and you'll be good to go.

In you'll find:

       9102999 Feb  6 19:38 gdb-pserver-2000-02-06.tar.bz2
       2230176 Feb  6 19:42 dejagnu-pserver-2000-02-06.tar.bz2
      11027699 Feb  6 20:01 gdb-dejagnu-pserver-2000-02-06.tar.bz2
      14246962 Feb  6 20:20 insight-pserver-2000-02-06.tar.bz2

The "gdb-pserver-2000-02-06.tar.bz2" is just GDB.

The "dejagnu-pserver-2000-02-06.tar.bz2" is just dejagnu.

The "gdb-dejagnu-pserver-2000-02-06.tar.bz2" is GDB and dejagnu.

The "insight-pserver-2000-02-06.tar.bz2" is Insight.

If you want to check out a tree for yourself, the instructions on
the GDB web page ( ) are updated.
In short, you want to do

 cvs -z9 -d login
   ("anoncvs" for the password)
 cvs -z9 -d co gdb

As I wrote previously, changes to the GDB repository will now happen
almost entirely in this public repository.  If you want to see cvs
commit messages as they happen, sign up to the gdb-cvs mailing list
(there are instructions on the GDB home page for getting on this) or
monitor its web archive.

Much credit for this repository move goes to Andrew Cagney who has been
moving (literally) mountains of code in the face of lame Australian
infrastructure :-) and an already heavy work load.  This move would have
been a disaster without the overdue reorganizations and cleanups he did
last week.  Thanks Andrew!

This is a significant change, and I expect some people to have problems.
I doubt I've thought of every possible confusion or complication in
this move.  Ask me if you have any questions.

Free the Software!
