30     Web Access
31     </h3>
32     <p>
33     We use <a href="http://viewcvs.sourceforge.net/">viewcvs</a>
34     to provide a visual frontend to the CVS Repository. It
35     allows you to browse around the repository, viewing any
36     version of a file, and the differences between different
37     versions. There is also a link to download the latest
38     version of any section.
39     </p>

41     <a href="http://cvs.i-scream.org/">http://cvs.i-scream.org/</a>
42     </p>
43     <p>
44     We also have a facility to allow people to keep tabs on
45     what's changed recently. The following are available:
46     </p>
47 tdb 1.18 <ul>
48     <li><a href="/cgi-bin/cvslog.cgi?period=today">Commits today</a></li>
49     <li><a href="/cgi-bin/cvslog.cgi?period=thisweek">Commits this week</a></li>
50     <li><a href="/cgi-bin/cvslog.cgi?period=days&amp;days=7">Commits in the past 7 days</a></li>
51     <li><a href="/cgi-bin/cvslog.cgi?period=since&amp;date=2001/03/29">Commits made since 29/03/2001</a></li>
52     </ul>
53 tdb 1.17 <h3>
54     Anonymous CVS Access (read-only)
55     </h3>
56     <p>
57     Anyone can access the i-scream CVS repository in anonymous
58 tdb 1.19 read-only mode. The following commands will allow you
59 tdb 1.17 to check out a portion of the CVS repository. To see what
60     is available it is recommended that you first look at the
61     web frontend.
62     </p>
63     <pre>
64 tdb 1.15 cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.i-scream.org:/cvs/i-scream login
65     cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.i-scream.org:/cvs/i-scream checkout [module]
66     </pre>
67 tdb 1.17 <p>
68     When asked for a password, simply press enter. Replace
69     [module] with the section you wish to checkout.
70     </p>
71     <h3>
72     Developer CVS Access (write)
73     </h3>
74     <p>
75     The i-scream development team have full write access to the
76     CVS repository. This is only available over SSH, and can be
77     done on most clients. First the following environment
78     variables need to be set.
79     </p>
80     <pre>
81 tdb 1.15 CVS_RSH = ssh
82     CVSROOT = :ext:username@cvs.i-scream.org:/cvs/i-scream
83     </pre>
84 tdb 1.17 <p>
85     You should know your username and password already. After
86     setting these you will need to enter your password each
87     time you use a CVS command. Obviously this is a time
88     wasting event, so an RSA key can be generated and placed on
89     the server for you. Please view the relevant ssh manpages
90     on how to generate an RSA key pair.
91     </p>
92     <p>
93     After this you will be able to work with CVS as normal.
94     </p>
95     <h3>
96     Other means of accessing CVS
97     </h3>
98     <p>
99     We currently provide <a href="http://www.cvsup.org/">CVSup</a>
100     access to the repository, either for mirroring or for
101     maintaining an up-to-date local copy. You will probably
102     want to create a supfile that looks something like this;
103     </p>
104     <pre>
105 tdb 1.15 *default host=cvsup.i-scream.org
106 tdb 1.3 *default base=/home/user/sup
107     *default prefix=/home/user/i-scream
108     *default release=cvs
109     *default delete use-rel-suffix
110 tdb 1.9 *default compress
111 tdb 1.15 i-scream.cms.source tag=.
112     </pre>
113 tdb 1.17 <p>
114     The last item in that list is the collection you which to
115     get. The collection "i-scream" is simply the whole
116     repository, and is best used with no tag specified for
117     mirroring. It is most likely that you will want to do that
118     given above, which gets the latest copy of the i-scream
119     source code.
120     </p>
121     <h3>
122     CVS Statistics
123     </h3>
124     <p>
125     There are some statistics available on the cms module
126     of the CVS repository, generated by
127     <a href="http://cvsplot.sourceforge.net/">cvsplot</a>,
128     that allow you to see the progress of development.
129     They're not that exciting, but do show when the work
130     was done.
131     </p>
