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 /sources/rms-essays co rms-essays

With other project modules:

cvs -z3 /sources/rms-essays co <modulename>

Webpage repository:

cvs -z3 co rms-essays

Hint: When you update your working copy from within the module's directory (with cvs update) you do not need the -d option anymore. Simply use

cvs update
cvs -qn update

to preview and status check.

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 Webpage 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 Webpage 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 twice an hour. More information in GNU Webmastering Guidelines.

Web pages for GNU packages

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