Anonymous read-only access is provided in two forms:
Browsing using ViewCVS.
Using the CVS pserver.
The following CVS modules are currently available for anonymous read-only access:
Table 6-7. Rocks CVS Modules
|rocks-src||All Rocks source code and the repackaged contributed source code.|
|rocks-doc||All Rocks documentation (documentation source to build this web site, Rocks talks, Rocks press releases, etc.).|
To checkout a module, first you need to login:
$ cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/home/cvs/CVSROOT login
This will ask for a password. No password is required, just enter an empty password.
After anonymously logging in, checkout a source tree (where module is one of the above CVS modules):
$ cvs -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/cvs/CVSROOT checkout module
For example, to checkout all the code within the rocks-src module, execute:
$ cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/home/cvs/CVSROOT checkout rocks-src
After initial checkout, you can change into this directory and execute cvs commands without the -d option. For example:
$ cvs update
Send a copy of your public ssh version 1 key (e.g., ~/.ssh/identity.pub) to firstname.lastname@example.org, and a short note explaining why you need write access. If you do not already have an ssh key on your client machine, simply run ssh-keygen -t rsa1 to build one.
Once we receive your public key, we will create an account for you and provide instructions on how to access the repository.
