Sitescooper CVS

If you contribute to sitescooper regularly, I can set you up with commit-access to the Sourceforge CVS repository. First of all, get CVS working using anonymous access, with the help of their CVS Documentation. the hostname and path is cvs.sitescooper.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/sitescooper , and the directoryname is sitescooper .

Even if you don't contribute regularly, this is very useful to ensure you've got the latest and greatest version with the minimum of hassle.

In summary, the commands to set up a checked-out directory are as follows.


For anonymous, read-only source access:

    export CVS_RSH=ssh
    cvs -d:pserver:[email protected]:/cvsroot/sitescooper login
    cvs -z3 -d:pserver:[email protected]:/cvsroot/sitescooper co sitescooper

(Just hit Enter when it asks you for a password.)

To update to the latest version later:

    export CVS_RSH=ssh
    cvs -z3 update -Pd

Once you've got that sorted, create a sourceforge account, then mail me the username. After I set that up, you can then checkout the source using SSH, and commit any changes you make after that point.


For fully-writable source access, with a sourceforge user account:

    export CVS_RSH=ssh
    cvs -dusername@cvs.sitescooper.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/sitescooper login
    cvs -z3 -dusername@cvs.sitescooper.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/sitescooper co sitescooper

(You'll need to enter the correct password for your SourceForge user account.)

To update to the latest version later:

    export CVS_RSH=ssh
    cvs -z3 update -Pd

Windows users: Sourceforge have some documentation on using CVS and SSH on Windows here.
