Like David and Rene said, you were in the 0.5 branch and you should
have commited to the 0.4.4 branch. But don't let that little bad luck
discourage you. I've removed your driver from the 0.5 branch, so do
these steps to commit it to the 0.4.4 branch:

export CVS_RSH=3Dssh
<make sure that there is no directory named lcdproc in the current
working directory>
cvs -z3 checkout -r stable-0-4-4 lcdproc
mv lcdproc lcdproc-stable-0-4-4
cd lcdproc-stable-0-4-4
<add your driver>
cvs update
<check out that you only modified the files that you wanted to modify>
=2E/configure --enable-drivers=3Dall
<make sure that everything compiled properly>
<try and make sure that your driver works>
<try and make sure that the curses driver (still) works>
<if you're a paranoid like me, you can even do a cvs diff and check
out your changes>
<take a deep breath 8)>
cvs commit -m "Added the SGX120 driver."

Hope this helps,
