Yet more evidence of confusion between:
version = 5.x-1.3 (the full version string, which doesn't belong in CVS)
core = 6.x (the version of core this thing is compatible with, which
should be in CVS)
This has nothing to do with modules vs. themes. I purged "version"
from *ALL* .info files in CVS (yes, even the 1 D6-specific theme in
contrib that put version in its .info, zenzen), not "core"....
That said, I should seriously consider if cvs_deploy.module can
handle missing "core", too, before people start doing major D6
porting. It's possible we don't need "core = 6.x" checked into CVS,
and cvs_deploy could try to figure it out if it's not there.
However, that'd probably require patching how the system_modules form
works in core, so I should definitely make sure any changes are done
before the D6 freeze. ;)
