I did not realize that you guys were checking in changes to the release_19 
branch. I have to disagree with this as release_19 is supposed to match 
the release 1.9 that we have on our website. This release has been tested 
on all platforms (that we support) and by changing the files in CVS I can 
no longer guarantee that same level of quality if someone checks out 
release_19. We do allow and suggest that people check out the release_19 
from CVS (in the Getting Started Guide) so they should be getting the same 
files as in the tar.

I would suggest creating your own branch if you do not plan to keep up 
with mainline cvs.

In the future, I would hope that you would talk to me (the Release 
Manager) or email the list about changes to the policy regarding the 
release branches.
