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>
40 <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 <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 <h3>
54 Anonymous CVS Access (read-only)
55 </h3>
56 <p>
57 Anyone can access the i-scream CVS repository in anonymous
58 read-only mode. The following commands will allow you
59 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 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 <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 CVS_RSH = ssh
82 CVSROOT = :ext:username@cvs.i-scream.org:/cvs/i-scream
83 </pre>
84 <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 *default host=cvsup.i-scream.org
106 *default base=/home/user/sup
107 *default prefix=/home/user/i-scream
108 *default release=cvs
109 *default delete use-rel-suffix
110 *default compress
111 i-scream.cms.source tag=.
112 </pre>
113 <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.
