Hey Russ... What I would suggest doing is just pulling down the
entire tree, which gets you every file, whether updated from the
original 1.1 release or not. Most of the files, I suspect, are not
different than the ones in the downloadable archive, but a few do have
some critical changes.
As the instructions on SourceForge say, you should use the follwoing
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@...:/cvsroot/dspace co dspace
(All of that would, of course, be entered as a single command.) This
will bring down the dspace tree into whatever directory you ran the
command from, and it will insert everything in to a /dspace
subdirectory. So, if you ran the above command from /scratch, you
would end up with everything in /scratch/dspace. From that point,
just proceed with installation / upgrading as directed in the docs.
