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 <p>There is a web interface to the i-scream CVS
37 repository allowing you to view any file, and diffs between them.</p>
38
39 <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>
40
41 <h3>Anonymous CVS Access (read-only)</h3>
42
43 <p>Anyone can access the i-scream CVS repository in
44 anonymous mode read-only mode. The following commands will allow you to check
45 out a portion of the CVS repository. To see what is available it is recommended
46 that you first look at the web frontend.</p>
47 </font>
48
49 <pre>cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.i-scream.org.uk:/cvs/i-scream login
50 cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.i-scream.org.uk:/cvs/i-scream checkout [module]</pre>
51
52 <font face="Arial" size="2">
53 <p>When asked for a password, simply press enter.
54 Replace [module] with the section you wish to checkout.</p>
55
56 <h3>Developer CVS Access (write)</h3>
57
58 <p>The i-scream development team have full write
59 access to the CVS repository. This is only available over SSH, and can be done
60 on most clients. First the following environment variables need to be set.</p>
61 </font>
62
63 <pre>CVS_RSH = ssh
64 CVSROOT = :ext:username@cvs.i-scream.org.uk:/cvs/i-scream</pre>
65
66 <font face="Arial" size="2">
67 <p>You should know your username and password
68 already. After setting these you will need to enter your password each time you
69 use a CVS command. Obviously this is a time wasting event, so an RSA key can be
70 generated and placed on the server for you. Please view the relevant ssh
71 manpages on how to generate an RSA key pair.</p>
72
73 <p>After this you will be able to work with CVS as
74 normal.</p>
75
76 <h3>Other means of accessing CVS</h3>
77
78 <p>We currently provide <a href="http://www.polstra.com/projects/freeware/CVSup/"> CVSup</a> access to the repository, either for mirroring or
79 for maintaining an up-to-date local copy. You will probably want to create a
80 supfile that looks something like this;</p>
81 </font>
82
83 <pre>*default host=cvsup.i-scream.org.uk
84 *default base=/home/user/sup
85 *default prefix=/home/user/i-scream
86 *default release=cvs
87 *default delete use-rel-suffix
88 i-scream.source tag=.</pre>
89
90 <font face="Arial" size="2">
91 <p>The last item in that list is the collection you which to get. The collection
92 &quot;i-scream&quot; is simply the whole repository, and is best used with no
93 tag specified for mirroring. It is most likely that you will want to do that
94 given above, which gets the latest copy of the i-scream source code.</p>
