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 <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>
48 </ul>
49 <h3>
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 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 <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 CVS_RSH = ssh
78 CVSROOT = :ext:username@cvs.i-scream.org:/cvs/i-scream
79 </pre>
80 <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 *default host=cvsup.i-scream.org
102 *default base=/home/user/sup
103 *default prefix=/home/user/i-scream
104 *default release=cvs
105 *default delete use-rel-suffix
106 *default compress
107 i-scream.cms.source tag=.
108 </pre>
109 <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.
