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.

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 <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 <h3>
55 Anonymous CVS Access (read-only)
56 </h3>
57 <p>
58 Anyone can access the i-scream CVS repository in anonymous
59 read-only mode. The following commands will allow you
60 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 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 <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 CVS_RSH = ssh
83 CVSROOT = :ext:username@cvs.i-scream.org:/cvs/i-scream
84 </pre>
85 <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 *default host=cvsup.i-scream.org
107 *default base=/home/user/sup
108 *default prefix=/home/user/i-scream
109 *default release=cvs
110 *default delete use-rel-suffix
111 *default compress
112 i-scream.cms.source tag=.
113 </pre>
114 <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.
