Indeed, we need to be much better at making the process more clear.

This is already there, but poorly publicized.  This is one of the things 
we hope to improve in this summer big round of ChucKian (anti)progress. 
Also, we hope to move from CVS to SVN at some point.  In the meantime:

Thanks all!
