At present, the generated files require fairly exotic tools (i.e. a
complete prior GNAT installation) to create, so they should remain in
CVS.  That unfortunately means they need to be generated into the
source directory, or people will forget to copy new versions into the
source directory when they make changes to the original files.

Is it possible to enforce checking in fresh derived files with the
CVS commit script?
