    if you are pulling from CVS, it is already there as xtrn/lord
    which is how we got here -=B-)

    Hmmmm.... that provides me a good opportunity to ask this
    question... [...]

    ummm... cvs update -d xtrn

    i forget when DM mentioned this but it is part of my standard
    update mechanism... IIRC -d adds (and removes??) new
    directories...

    OK, that makes good sense, I'll do that soonly.

    What about all the other directories under /sbbs ? The update
    procedure on the Wiki only shows "cvs update -d src 3rdp". Do we
    also need to do "ctrl data exec text web xtrn" when updating? (I
    know we just mentioned xtrn, and the exec/text are done later in
    the Wiki procedure). Does it hurt anything to do all of them
    every time?

    Thanks.

    "ctrl" - never
    "data" - no (it's not in CVS)
    "exec" - always
    "text" - depends on whether you have local changes or not, you probably do "web" - likely, yes
    "xtrn" - with care

    (I
    know we just mentioned xtrn, and the exec/text are done later in

    Yes, it would hurt to synchronize all of those sub-dirs from CVS.

    I'd suggest adding a version number to the directory for the
    doors, if needed. For example my "regular" LORD is installed in ../sbbs/xtrn/lord406. If/when I get around to installing the
    ported JS version, it will likely go into ../sbbs/xtrn/lordjs.

    I was think of somethign like that a few hrs. today (sometime after deuce started working on lord)

    OK, thank you very much for that, DM. Greatly appreciated.
