ctm base files will get you the source as of the last release. Then you
have to apply the delta files to get to -current. With cvs, you get
-current in one shot. ctm might be a good way to track -current. But if
you are only wanting -current for a one time shot, cvs...
It makes no difference, really. Either way, your going to get the same
thing: A source tree. Which brings a question to mind: When you say
cvs tree, do you mean a cvs repository or a set of sources from the cvs
repository? A local cvs repository is an entirely different matter. So
what do you want? A repository or sources?
% cd /usr
% cvs get ksrc-sparc ksrc-common
This would yeild a sparc specific local source tree, not a cvs
% cd /usr
% cvs get src
Would yeild a complete source tree.
Tar it up, and take it home.
