bootstrapping LJ

I realized our docs have fallen out of sync from our tools lately, so here's an update on bootstrapping LiveJournal from subversion:

~$ cd $LJHOME
~/test-lj$ mkdir cvs
~/test-lj$ cd cvs/
~/test-lj/cvs$
~/test-lj/cvs$ svn co http://code.sixapart.com/svn/vcv/trunk vcv
~/test-lj/cvs$ svn co http://code.sixapart.com/svn/livejournal/trunk livejournal
~$ cd $LJHOME
~/test-lj$ cvs/vcv/bin/vcv --conf=cvs/livejournal/cvs/multicvs.conf --checkout -c -s

Then in the future, to stay updated:

~$ bin/cvsreport.pl -u -c -s

(cvsreport.pl is just a front-end to vcv)

Look at the vcv options to see how to use it.
