AFAIK, this is not true... when you do a 'cvs checkout', it only fetches 
down a particular version of the file(s).  The history/changelog 
information remains in the RCS control file in the repository, which is 
still on mythtv.org.... and 'cvs history' is a rather expensive 
operation.  To do what you're suggesting and use your bandwith, you'd 
still need to mirror the mythtv.org *repository* on a daily basis.
