Shoot. I keep forgetting about you guys. ;-)

I'll make a release sometime tomorrow. It's 3:00 AM here, and I can't see the 
screen anymore.

CVS does work with windows, but you have to take some time to get it working 
right. I think I was using winCVS, but it had some weird behavior. Try 
searching on Google for something like "howto windows cvs" or "windows cvs 
beginner" or whatnot, see what comes up. Make sure you also use the resources 
at sourceforge, because their documentation is aimed specifically at people 
like you who are all new to this.

The scariest part of CVS for me was  the fact that it was creating 
directories and moving stuff around, and "what's all this 
authentication/login/password stuff about and how come it don't work?" But 
after a while, it all makes a lot of sense, and you realize how easy it was 
all along. Kind of like HTML, I guess.

Good Luck,
