That's what I suspect. I think that the files were either updated or 
touched to make sure that the whole tree was propagated the next time 
people did a CVSup of the tree itself. It's not a big deal, it the first 
time I've noticed CVSup do that as I usually just look at the exit status 
of my cron job and go onto the next email.
