I was finally able to pull tree down. Took about 1:20 to get it. Until there comes a guide that tells how to compile the source for these projects, I'd prefer dsk images, which as yet are unavailable. At any rate, I got them...

After a long bitch session with vz's un-tech support, and another 2-3
hours, I pulled the whole tree fresh in about 55 minutes. For
sorceforges cvs server, that's running at mach 4.
A du . returns 50764 disk blocks. cd'ing to /home/shop/emc2.head where I
have the emc2 HEAD tree stashed for local reference, a cvs up -Pd takes 5
or 6 minutes, and a du . returns 66528, a slightly larger
tree. But on
balance, probably fewer actual files because they're bigger.
I still have an open trouble ticket with vz's un-tech support.

Well, as you have seen from my previous messages, sourceforge is one
achilles heel that was removed from the emc2 development effort.
Progress there is now running at 5 to 10x its former rate. I believe
that by the time these guys get to emc-2.5, (its at 2.1 now) they will
have blown all other commercial efforts at cnc machine control plumb out
of the water. We can now cut threads at any pitch you'd like, on both a
lathe and on a milling machine given spindle encoders that have a zero
index pulse output. Also, compound, non-circular shapes in 3d now work,
I've even done some of
that myself on my little toy mill. It has been
able to run 6 axis stuff for a long time. Paul Corner has put together a
live cd called bdi (for brain dead install) that will actually run live
from the cd. But I warn you, its addictive...

I think we need a better model of monkey. :)
