Oh, and revised draft:

ABS 2.0 In Testing

With version 2, ABS has moved to an rsync method for pulling the ABS
tree, as part of the changes that needed to be made for our internal
move from CVS to SVN as our source control mechanism.  This means a
few things:

1) cvsup/csup are no longer required, rsync is used instead
2) Configuration moved from /etc/abs/abs.conf to /etc/abs.conf -
/etc/abs/* are no longer required

Also, since category information (ie. base, devel, editors) is no
longer stored in the repo, makeworld has been updated - check
makeworld -h for more info.

- had more votes for removal of #3 (filtering outbound traffic) than
for inclusion, so it's toast.
