        * manifest: use SIGQUIT(3) rather than SIGTRAP(5) in trap commands
        This error dates back to 1997 (970802) in ncurses:
                + many corrections to make progs/capconvert work, as well as make it
                  reasonably portable and integrated with ncurses 4.1 (reported by Dave
                  Furstenau <df@ravine.binary.net>).

        but I see in my "nfilter" script I used it as far back as December 1993, on the
        other hand in "externs" (August 1991) I had it corrrect.

        But here are the first uses in ncurses:
                capconvert      1997/08/02 21:52:06    1.3
                edit_cfg.sh     1997/11/08 18:14:57    1.7
                make_sed.sh     1997/12/06 20:52:47       tom
                MKterminfo.sh   1998/09/05 23:53:51    1.4
                MKtermsort.sh   2001/05/26 23:37:57    1.7
                MKkey_defs.sh   2001/06/16 15:25:10       tom
                MKkeys_list.sh  2001/06/16 16:47:39       tom
                make-tar.sh     2010/02/20 22:46:57       tom

        * release2git:
        git commit is using local time, not UTC.  work around by setting TZ=0, so

        * release2git:

2016-08-17  dickey@invisible-island.net

        * release2git:
        make special case of changelog-name for dbmalloc, where I left the original

        2003.

        * release2git: construct working directory

        * release2git:

2016-06-07  dickey@invisible-island.net

        * release2git: RCS_BASE

2012-08-30  dickey@invisible-island.net

        * rcs2git: testing for xterm
        skip branches

2012-08-28  dickey@invisible-island.net

        * manifest: dash didn't like shift of empty args

        * bundle2github: RCS_BASE

2012-03-18  dickey@invisible-island.net

        * manifest:

        insists

2012-02-26  dickey@invisible-island.net

        * manifest:
        some macros in my-autoconf have pathnames longer than 32, which made the

2010-07-05  dickey@invisible-island.net

        * manifest:
        since I'm usually checking-in configure scripts now, it turns out that this
        script always assumed they weren't, and generated an entry for it right after
        configure.in - however, the checked-in script appears right before configure.in,
        and is a duplicate (report by Jonathan Neider).

2007-12-27  dickey@invisible-island.net

        * manifest: use csort

2003-04-30  dickey@invisible-island.net

2002-07-28  dickey@invisible-island.net

        * manifest:
        add -d option, so I can suppress "subdirectory" lines which confuse Perl's

        * manifest:
        make dummy-entries for directories, so cshar will do the right thing

        * manifest:
        added logic to let me append auto-generated files into the manifest

        * manifest: rewrote so I don't need 'checkup'

1994-09-03  dickey@clark.net

        * manifest:
        strip off the "-r" from the revision so the generated file looks nicer

1994-08-19  dickey@clark.net

        * manifest:
        hack to make 'configure' appear after other files (for timestamps)

1994-08-18  dickey@clark.net

        * manifest:
        mods to sort subdirectories into separate clumps, for readability

1994-08-16  dickey@clark.net
