14     i-scream CVS Repository
15     </h1>
16     <p>
17     The i-scream CVS Repository contains all code,
18     documentation, and other files pertaining to all i-scream
19     projects.
20     </p>
21     <p>
22     All code available in the CVS Repository is
23     <a href= "/license.xhtml">licensed</a> under the GPL.
24     </p>
25     <h3>
26     Web Access
27     </h3>
28     <p>
29     We use <a href="http://viewcvs.sourceforge.net/">viewcvs</a>
30     to provide a visual frontend to the CVS Repository. It
31     allows you to browse around the repository, viewing any
32     version of a file, and the differences between different
33     versions. There is also a link to download the latest
34     version of any section.
35     </p>
36     <p>
37     <a href="http://cvs.i-scream.org/">http://cvs.i-scream.org/</a>
38     </p>
39     <p>
40     We also have a facility to allow people to keep tabs on
41     what's changed recently. The following are available:
42     </p>
43 tdb 1.18 <ul>
44     <li><a href="/cgi-bin/cvslog.cgi?period=today">Commits today</a></li>
45     <li><a href="/cgi-bin/cvslog.cgi?period=thisweek">Commits this week</a></li>
46     <li><a href="/cgi-bin/cvslog.cgi?period=days&amp;days=7">Commits in the past 7 days</a></li>
47     <li><a href="/cgi-bin/cvslog.cgi?period=since&amp;date=2001/03/29">Commits made since 29/03/2001</a></li>

50     Anonymous CVS Access (read-only)
51     </h3>
52     <p>
53     Anyone can access the i-scream CVS repository in anonymous
54     mode read-only mode. The following commands will allow you
55     to check out a portion of the CVS repository. To see what
56     is available it is recommended that you first look at the
57     web frontend.
58     </p>
59     <pre>
60 tdb 1.15 cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.i-scream.org:/cvs/i-scream login
61     cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.i-scream.org:/cvs/i-scream checkout [module]
62     </pre>
63 tdb 1.17 <p>
64     When asked for a password, simply press enter. Replace
65     [module] with the section you wish to checkout.
66     </p>
67     <h3>
68     Developer CVS Access (write)
69     </h3>
70     <p>
71     The i-scream development team have full write access to the
72     CVS repository. This is only available over SSH, and can be
73     done on most clients. First the following environment
74     variables need to be set.
75     </p>
76     <pre>
77 tdb 1.15 CVS_RSH = ssh
78     CVSROOT = :ext:username@cvs.i-scream.org:/cvs/i-scream
79     </pre>
80 tdb 1.17 <p>
81     You should know your username and password already. After
82     setting these you will need to enter your password each
83     time you use a CVS command. Obviously this is a time
84     wasting event, so an RSA key can be generated and placed on
85     the server for you. Please view the relevant ssh manpages
86     on how to generate an RSA key pair.
87     </p>
88     <p>
89     After this you will be able to work with CVS as normal.
90     </p>
91     <h3>
92     Other means of accessing CVS
93     </h3>
94     <p>
95     We currently provide <a href="http://www.cvsup.org/">CVSup</a>
96     access to the repository, either for mirroring or for
97     maintaining an up-to-date local copy. You will probably
98     want to create a supfile that looks something like this;
99     </p>
100     <pre>
101 tdb 1.15 *default host=cvsup.i-scream.org
102 tdb 1.3 *default base=/home/user/sup
103     *default prefix=/home/user/i-scream
104     *default release=cvs
105     *default delete use-rel-suffix
106 tdb 1.9 *default compress
107 tdb 1.15 i-scream.cms.source tag=.
108     </pre>
109 tdb 1.17 <p>
110     The last item in that list is the collection you which to
111     get. The collection "i-scream" is simply the whole
112     repository, and is best used with no tag specified for
113     mirroring. It is most likely that you will want to do that
114     given above, which gets the latest copy of the i-scream
115     source code.
116     </p>
117     <h3>
118     CVS Statistics
119     </h3>
120     <p>
121     There are some statistics available on the cms module
122     of the CVS repository, generated by
123     <a href="http://cvsplot.sourceforge.net/">cvsplot</a>,
124     that allow you to see the progress of development.
125     They're not that exciting, but do show when the work
126     was done.
127     </p>
