I think the easiest path is to create an "at13" branch in CVS. Then the
"mkrelease_at" script (the script that actually creates the tarball that
users would get) would work from the at13 branch, not the head of CVS.
Everyone could continue to commit to CVS (head, by default) just as before
-- we'd just have to make sure that genuine bugfixes also get committed to
the at13 branch.

Comments are welcome, but I think this satisfies the requirements you
outlined in your email. A key change would be that people testing
AmberTools 1.3 release candidates would have to work from actual tarballs,
and no longer just test what is in CVS.
