>=A0searchadm, for now you have to use CVS if you want the latest

Not to go too offtopic here, but hopefully this will help searchadm and=
others (especially Windows users) getting this project working from CVS:
1. DO NOT use a CVS GUI until you are familiar with the command-line=
version, how to specify a CVSROOT, and loosely how CVS works. Skim the=
beginning of "the Cederqvist" (the official unofficial CVS manual) at:=
2. Cygwin ( http://cygwin.com/ ), as Dan F. mentioned, is a great free=
toolkit for getting real work done on a Windows box, and it's worth=
installing, but don't use its CVS because it's not 100% compatible with the=
GUIs you'll eventually want to use.
3. Download and get familar with the free CVSNT: http://cvsnt.org/ .
4. CVSNT will be the power behind the popular free CvsGui aka WinCVS:=
http://wincvs.org/ . Install this once you are comfortable with=
command-line CVS and actually need to do somewhat complicated tasks. =
You'll find its Python/Tcl macros powerful and convenient.
Notice the word "free" a lot? All this stuff is out there and available for=
anybody to use, all open source. CVS has its warts, but it's time-tested=
and very widespread, so go ahead and take the plunge.
And once you get CVS working, just type these two commands (one to log in,=
the second to get the latest phpwiki module), and you'll magically have a=
directory called "phpwiki" with the latest PhpWiki:
1. cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@... login
2. cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@... co=
