No, the only stuff that goes in CVS before formal review are files that
multiple developers are sharing development on. They always go on a
branch. For the review, all files are supposed to get zipped up and put in
the YahooGroups files section for easy access.

The moderators have discussed setting up a second CVS just for
pre-submission collaboration. That way we could keep the main CVS
"pure". In the long run, that is probably worth doing.
