There has been made some major restructuring of the SciPy CVS repository:
* scipy subpackages are moved to Lib directory
* scipy_{distutils,test,base} is moved to a separate CVS module named
* etc.

Here follows instructions how to update your local scipy CVS tree:

1) Make a backup of your local scipy source tree. This is relevant only if
   you have uncommited files in your local scipy copy.

2) Checkout new scipy CVS tree using

     cvs -d :pserver:anonymous at scipy.org:/home/cvsroot checkout scipy


     cvs -d :ext:loginname at scipy.org:/home/cvsroot checkout scipy

3) Modified files from the old scipy tree may now copied to a new tree.

4) To install scipy, use

   cd scipy
   python setup.py install

Note that the new scipy CVS tree does not contain all the contents from
the old tree, some Attic directories and obsolete files where not copied
to the new tree. However, the old copy of scipy CVS tree is available

  cvs -d ... checkout scipy1

These CVS changes may cause cvs update failures on your old local
scipy CVS tree. As fix, see points 1) and 2) above.

Sorry for the inconvinience but hopefully these changes make using
scipy CVS easier for many people, both for users and distributors.
