Well, _personally_ speaking this won't interest me too much. I think I know 
what you are going to say about version control systems in general and I'm 
quite familiar with CVS and Subversion.

But it could be a good idea for everybody else.

It is possible that would miss the point of instructing people why version 
control is important.

That would probably interest me the most as I don't know Arch very well. A 
tutorial I followed in getting it to work back in the larch-1.0-preX age, has 
become out of date with recent versions of tla.
