And, a single tar file is exactly what MontaVista needs to be able
to integrate and productize from CGL sources in an effective way.

In fact, we need a single tar file of the sources you used to build
and we need it for EVERY build you post, so we can diff from build
to build and so we can follow the threads of integration.

Trying to wade through all the CVS stuff, from an MV integration
standpoint, from build to build, would be a nightmare.

Output whatever format you think necessary to validation/QA.
