**ANNOUNCE** HylaFAX.ORG anonymous CVS access
I'm pleased to announce the availability of a public hylafax CVS repository, on
which you may find the current (but unofficial) sources being maintained by the
HylaFAX.ORG gang ;-)
To use the repository, you will have to do the following
1. Install a recent copy of cvs. All you really need is a copy
of the cvs client binary.
2. Run the command:
cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot login
3. Enter the password, which is simply the string "cvs".
4. To checkout the distribution, run the command:
cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot co hylafax
This will create a directory called hylafax containing the latest
HylaFAX(tm) source code.
5.Whenever you want to merge in the latest code changes (ie: get
your hylafax/ directory up to date, cd to your hylafax dir
cvs update -d -P
My compliments to Andrew Tridgell (of SAMBA fame) for developing the version of
pserver used to offer this service. It runs under a harmless UID in a chrooted
jail, using an rsync-maintained mirror of the CVS tree rather than the master
My apologies for not getting this out on Friday, as originally promised. The
setup was a bit tricky. If you discover problems with this service, and there
are bound to be a few, let me know please, and I'll sort them out ASAP.
Otherwise, good luck!
