On a related note, what's the definitive source for old source code?

svn.freebsd.org/base/releng is patchy (especially with respect tor 3.x); 
/release will do for some of the gaps for my purposes, but some are 
missed out frmo there too (1.x for example). I can't find the source on 
the ftp-archive you've just mentioned, except as tarballs on the release 
media That's a lot of tar -x to get a working copy and seems somehow 
wrong, although the release process wasn't consistent .

Someone, somewhere must have a complete set of sources in once place?!?

Thanks, Frank.
