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>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
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
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 <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>

50 <h3>Anonymous CVS Access (read-only)</h3>
51
52 <p>Anyone can access the i-scream CVS repository in
53 anonymous mode read-only mode. The following commands will allow you to check
54 out a portion of the CVS repository. To see what is available it is recommended
55 that you first look at the web frontend.</p>
56 </font>
57
58 <pre>cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.i-scream.org.uk:/cvs/i-scream login
59 cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.i-scream.org.uk:/cvs/i-scream checkout [module]</pre>
60
61 <font face="Arial" size="2">
62 <p>When asked for a password, simply press enter.
63 Replace [module] with the section you wish to checkout.</p>
64
65 <h3>Developer CVS Access (write)</h3>
66
67 <p>The i-scream development team have full write
68 access to the CVS repository. This is only available over SSH, and can be done
69 on most clients. First the following environment variables need to be set.</p>
70 </font>
71
72 <pre>CVS_RSH = ssh
73 CVSROOT = :ext:username@cvs.i-scream.org.uk:/cvs/i-scream</pre>
74
75 <font face="Arial" size="2">
76 <p>You should know your username and password
77 already. After setting these you will need to enter your password each time you
78 use a CVS command. Obviously this is a time wasting event, so an RSA key can be
79 generated and placed on the server for you. Please view the relevant ssh
80 manpages on how to generate an RSA key pair.</p>
81
82 <p>After this you will be able to work with CVS as
83 normal.</p>
84
85 <h3>Other means of accessing CVS</h3>
86
87 <p>We currently provide <a href="http://www.polstra.com/projects/freeware/CVSup/"> CVSup</a> access to the repository, either for mirroring or
88 for maintaining an up-to-date local copy. You will probably want to create a
89 supfile that looks something like this;</p>
90 </font>
91
92 <pre>*default host=cvsup.i-scream.org.uk
93 *default base=/home/user/sup
94 *default prefix=/home/user/i-scream
95 *default release=cvs
96 *default delete use-rel-suffix
97 i-scream.source tag=.</pre>
98
99 <font face="Arial" size="2">
100 <p>The last item in that list is the collection you which to get. The collection
101 &quot;i-scream&quot; is simply the whole repository, and is best used with no
102 tag specified for mirroring. It is most likely that you will want to do that
103 given above, which gets the latest copy of the i-scream source code.</p>
104
105 <h3>CVS Statistics</h3>
106
107 <p>There are some statistics available on the source module of the CVS
108 repository, generated by <a href="http://cvsstat.sourceforge.net/">cvsstat</a>,
109 that allow you to see the progress of development. They're not that exciting,
110 but do show when the work was done.</p>
