I don't know :-(  I've tried to use the Trac site looking for particular
changesets and found that for some of them, the list of files are out of
sync with reality, and sometimes the diff don't have anything to do with
what the commit message says.

I've never been sure if the problem is the repo itself, or the Trac
interface.  After discovering the problem independently a couple of
times (the second time I had forgotten that I had already found a
problem), I stopped using it and reverted to using cvs2cl and cvsup.

I imagine the problems are caused by manual mangling of the files in the
early days, like the perl5 dir stuff you found.
