Thanks. :-)

Just for the records:

I didn't use cvs diff. I rarely do. It's too slow.

While doing this on Luke's commits, I did something

  rsync -a -v samba/. samba.old/.
  (cd samba; cvs -z3 update)
  diff -Ndwurp samba.old samba | less

I did that on a daily basis at that time, and I did it a
while before even contacting Luke. It was a means to find a
"stable" version to update my pdc to. ;) (I really had a
lot more time at that time.)
So 18months might be correct... I don't know.

In TNG I'm doing nearly the same, except I'm doing it
directly on the CVS repository. (I have a complete TNG
repository on my box at home, synced to the master copy)
