    cvs -d co ext3

    The branches being used are

    cvs up -r ext3-1_0-branch # HEAD of ext3 development
    cvs up -r features-branch # For htree, ACLs etc

    and there are a couple of other branches I use for tracking merges into
    Linus's and the -ac trees. The htree stuff is all that's new in the
    features-branch right now.
