No, I mean exactly 2000.

What do you mean here?  "Download a CVS snapshot; make bootstrap; make
check; if (errors) wait [unspecified period of time], reload and repeat"?

I assume you misspelled "2.91".

Well, what about modifying you web page?  Say something as:

"libstdc++ 2.91 may be used with a CVS snapshot from 18-Jan-2001 12:34 to
19-Jan-2001 01:23".


"The CVS snapshot of 17-Jan-2001 at 09.30 contains a version of libstdc++
that passes the tests."

If I follow YOUR instructions and I do not get what you promises, don't
blame ME for having used a buggy snapshot.
