Yes, I use CVS to track releases and intermediate versions.
"The developers" --- Hmmm, there not so many :-)
There are some reasons, why I think a distributed development is not
the right think for _this_ piece of software:
- Isn't very security sensitive and so like to know what's in
(yes every line of code).
- The U.S. export restrictions make it difficult for many
programmers to participate :-(
- Because it is an official GNU project, I have to get legal papers
about all larger code contributions - We don't want to get into
the Emacs troubles.

I don't know. If you are going to do so, please have a look at some
special options (e.g. --with-colons) which makes parsing of the output
much easier. Don't hesitate to request an option if you think it may
be good for an interface.
I guess you are form the U.S. - remember the ITARs (see
"http://www.eff.org/pub/Crypto/ITAR_export/" for more information
in this subject).
Thanks for your offer to setup a CVS system,
