I look at it occasionally, and merge/update.  It's only been "regularly"
updated during the past year afaik, (Each time I work on a program I resync the
autoconf macros as well - _that_ isn't automatic since some require additional
modifications to the configure script).  I also read the changes in the CVS
version - I find it annoying when it has spelling errors and inconsistencies in

There's more than one factor - I see that some people are giving pointers
to the CVS version (and don't have the url memorized).  If I find that it's
not in the CVS version, I do send email about it, but my experience in that
has been mixed (if they don't already know about it, they don't add it w/o
several reminders).  So I'll pick up the changes until it's "official".
