About CVS, I know what it is as I am, too, a Linux user.

I agree, there should be, somewhere, a full version to download, up to date
or may be, like with sourceforge, a CVS you can browse with your favorite
internet browser. I don't know WinCvs.
>I think its to do with the Linux frame of mind..
I don't care about Linux and/or Windows like Chris Wolf perfectly summarized
I also think. This will be my last comment and email about this. I just want
the vorbis sdk :
Here is Chris comment :
"Also I would not waste time debating command line vs. windows, or windows
since the main goal here is to evangelize Ogg/Vorbis, not any specific OS --
we should try
to accomodate both. I personally prefer UNIX and command line tools, but
the average end PC user to have the same sentiment. However, I would like
to see the average
PC user switch from mp3 to ogg, so I think it's important to support ogg on
