I noticed this too.  I think I proposed this months ago, but i'll do it 
again...I think the repository should be split like this:


All of the stuff you need to compile/run kepler would be in dev.  All 
the extraneous stuff would be in docs.  Then you could do a 'cvs co 
kepler/dev' and be a happy camper.
