do you want to add the IOS images to CVS? you should be able to...just not sure
if you want to...the space could be large depending on how many devices and what
the image size is, normally about 8+ megs now. You could just modify a login
script and use the -c option with, "copy flash:image ftp://ftpserver", which
should do it. Then just cron that....but you wouldn't get the change if one
occurred...but you would still have the old and new images.
