Anonymous CVSYou can access the anonymous CVS server of the Giant Java Tree with your cvs client. To do this, you will will be accessing the server via 'pserver' mode. You may not be familiar with pserver mode, however, once your CVSROOT is properly set, you will not even notice the difference in how you use CVS.
The parameters essential to the pserver connection are:
You can establish these parameters either by setting your CVSROOT environment, or by using the '-d' option when running cvs. Here are examples of both:
Setting the CVSROOT environment variable:
CVSROOT=:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/gjt/cvsroot export CVSROOT cvs login
Using the '-d' option with cvs:
cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/gjt/cvsroot login
If you use the '-d' option, it needs to be specified with every invocation of cvs, not just on the login command.
