I didn't notice a report recently about concept_check. I thought I
checked in fixes for the problems we were seeing. Hmm, maybe the CVS
outage kept things from going in... lemme check.

Um, despite SF site status saying that CVS is up, I can't reach the
server through ssh:

  $ ssh -v david_abrahams_at_[hidden]
  OpenSSH_4.3p2, OpenSSL 0.9.8a 11 Oct 2005
  debug1: Reading configuration data /home/dave/.ssh/config
  debug1: Connecting to [] port 22.
  debug1: connect to address port 22: Connection reset by peer
  ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection reset by peer

So I may well be sitting on fixes that I can't check in. Can't tell
of course, because with CVS you can't do a diff unless you can reach
the server. I've submitted a support request at SF, but in principle
they don't check those except on weekdays... :(

Sounds good to me.
