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