29     <h2>i-scream CVS Repository</h2>
30    
31     <p>The i-scream CVS Repository contains all code,
32     documentation, and other stuff pertaining to all i-scream projects.</p>
33    
34     <h3>Web Access</h3>
35    
36 tdb 1.4 <p>We use <a href="http://viewcvs.sourceforge.net/">viewcvs</a> to provide a
37     visual frontend to the CVS Repository. It allows you to browse around the
38     repository, viewing any version of a file, and the differences between different
39     versions. There is also a link to download the latest version of any section.</p>
40 tdb 1.1
41     <p><a href="http://www.i-scream.org.uk/cgi-bin/cvs/viewcvs.cgi">http://www.i-scream.org.uk/cgi-bin/cvs/viewcvs.cgi</a></p>
42 tdb 1.4
43     <p>We also have a facility to allow people to keep tabs on what's changed
44     recently. The following are available:</p>
45    
46 tdb 1.5 <p>Commits today: <a href="http://www.i-scream.org.uk/cgi-bin/cvslog.cgi?period=today">http://www.i-scream.org.uk/cgi-bin/cvslog.cgi?period=today</a><br>
47     Commits this week: <a href="http://www.i-scream.org.uk/cgi-bin/cvslog.cgi?period=thisweek">http://www.i-scream.org.uk/cgi-bin/cvslog.cgi?period=thisweek</a><br>
48     Commits in the past 7 days: <a href="http://www.i-scream.org.uk/cgi-bin/cvslog.cgi?period=days&days=7">http://www.i-scream.org.uk/cgi-bin/cvslog.cgi?period=days&days=7</a></p>
49 tdb 1.4
50     <p>Finally we have some graphical statistics on the data held in CVS:</p>
51    
52     <p>[to be added]</p>
53 tdb 1.1
54     <h3>Anonymous CVS Access (read-only)</h3>
55    
56     <p>Anyone can access the i-scream CVS repository in
57     anonymous mode read-only mode. The following commands will allow you to check
58     out a portion of the CVS repository. To see what is available it is recommended
59     that you first look at the web frontend.</p>
60     </font>
61    
62     <pre>cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.i-scream.org.uk:/cvs/i-scream login
63     cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.i-scream.org.uk:/cvs/i-scream checkout [module]</pre>
64    
65     <font face="Arial" size="2">
66     <p>When asked for a password, simply press enter.
67     Replace [module] with the section you wish to checkout.</p>
68    
69     <h3>Developer CVS Access (write)</h3>
70    
71     <p>The i-scream development team have full write
72     access to the CVS repository. This is only available over SSH, and can be done
73     on most clients. First the following environment variables need to be set.</p>
74     </font>
75    
76     <pre>CVS_RSH = ssh
77     CVSROOT = :ext:username@cvs.i-scream.org.uk:/cvs/i-scream</pre>
78    
79     <font face="Arial" size="2">
80     <p>You should know your username and password
81     already. After setting these you will need to enter your password each time you
82     use a CVS command. Obviously this is a time wasting event, so an RSA key can be
83     generated and placed on the server for you. Please view the relevant ssh
84     manpages on how to generate an RSA key pair.</p>
85    
86     <p>After this you will be able to work with CVS as
87     normal.</p>
88    
89     <h3>Other means of accessing CVS</h3>
90    
91 tdb 1.3 <p>We currently provide <a href="http://www.polstra.com/projects/freeware/CVSup/"> CVSup</a> access to the repository, either for mirroring or
92     for maintaining an up-to-date local copy. You will probably want to create a
93     supfile that looks something like this;</p>
94     </font>
95    
96     <pre>*default host=cvsup.i-scream.org.uk
97     *default base=/home/user/sup
98     *default prefix=/home/user/i-scream
99     *default release=cvs
100     *default delete use-rel-suffix
101     i-scream.source tag=.</pre>
102    
103     <font face="Arial" size="2">
104     <p>The last item in that list is the collection you which to get. The collection
105     &quot;i-scream&quot; is simply the whole repository, and is best used with no
106     tag specified for mirroring. It is most likely that you will want to do that
107     given above, which gets the latest copy of the i-scream source code.</p>
108 tdb 1.6
109     <h3>CVS Statistics</h3>
110    
111     <p>There are some statistics available on the source module of the CVS
112     repository, generated by <a href="http://cvsstat.sourceforge.net/">cvsstat</a>,
113     that allow you to see the progress of development. They're not that exciting,
114     but do show when the work was done.</p>
