Getting a Copy of the CVS Repository

Anonymous CVS Access

This project's CVS repository can be checked out through anonymous CVS with the following instruction set. The module you wish to check out must be specified as the modulename.

Software repository:

cvs -z3 co <modulename>

Webpages repository:

cvs -z3 co <modulename>

When you update from within the module's directory (with cvs update) you do not need the -d option anymore.

Project Member CVS Access via SSH

Member access is performed using the CVS over SSH method. The pserver method can only be used for anonymous access.

The SSHv2 public key fingerprints for the machine hosting the cvs trees are:

RSA: 1024 80:5a:b0:0c:ec:93:66:29:49:7e:04:2b:fd:ba:2c:d5
DSA: 1024 4d:c8:dc:9a:99:96:ae:cc:ce:d3:2b:b0:a3:a4:95:a5

Software repository:

export CVS_RSH=ssh
cvs -z3 -d:ext:<membername> co <modulename>

Webpages repository:

export CVS_RSH=ssh
cvs -z3 -d:ext:<membername> co fsfe

CVS Newbies

If you've never used CVS, you should read some documentation about it; a useful URL is Using CVS is not complex but you have to understand what is going on. The best way to start is to ask a friend to show you the way.

The basic information described further on this page is detailed in the savannah user doc.

The same applies to the Webpages Repository.

Import your CVS tree

If your project already has an existing CVS repository that you want to move to Savannah, make an appointment with us for the migration.

Symbolic Links in HTML CVS

As a special feature in CVS web repositories (only), a file named .symlinks can be put in any directory where you want to make symbolic links. Each line of the file lists a real file name followed by the name of the symbolic link. The symbolic links are built once a day. More information.

Web pages for GNU packages

When writing web pages for official GNU packages, please keep the guidelines in mind.
