Please pardon if this is a dumb question, but what is the relationship
between the various versions of this module in CVS?

There are three recent copies of image.module in the current CVS for
contributions, as of tonight:

  21469 2005-03-08 17:22 ./sandbox/walkah/image/45/image.module
  21646 2005-03-08 17:22 ./sandbox/walkah/image/image.module
  73187 2005-03-08 17:22 ./modules/image/image.module

Now, it's fairly clear the difference between the first two -- one is for
Drupal 4.5 and the other presumably for 4.6 (HEAD). But what about the third
one? Where does it fit in? That's a vastly different file size, such that
"diff" isn't even useful here.

I'm trying to test the upgrade process from the stable image.module from
Drupal 4.5 to (something) for Drupal 4.6, but so far it seems that no matter
which version I try, the associated image.inc file from the module directory
conflicts with the image.inc module from Drupal's core "includes" directory.

I feel really stupid for not being able to make this work; I know I'm just
overlooking something, but there are so many permutations possible for this
that I realized I'm beating my head against the wall. Should I upgrade the
image module within Drupal 4.5, then go to Drupal 4.6, or the other way

So I offer this proposition: Someone tell me the right way to do the update
process, and I'll provide a test report in return. I've got a working but non-
production site with a couple of photo albums and several different resolutions
for a nicely-varied test run. (And I have backups so I can reset the conditions
to re-run the test.)

Thanks for any suggestions.
