Updates on the Fedora CVS server

We have opened to the public the anonymous access CVS server for Fedora Core and Fedora Extras. The server lives on http://cvs.fedora.redhat.com and it has been in use for quite some time now.

The CVS server currently hosts two major projects, with more headed its way:

1. Fedora Core read-only anonymous mirror for our internal Fedora development tree. Now you can follow through CVS every commit done by the Red Hat engineers to the Fedora Core development tree. You can quickly reference when, where and why certain changes have been inserted into your favorite packages.
CVSROOT=:pserver:anonymous cvs fedora redhat com:/cvs/dist
export CVSROOT

2. Fedora Extras repository. Thanks to a group of very dedicated volunteers the repository has been updated to be compatible with the Fedora Core 3; we're working on getting an automated build system in place that will provide binary rpms for all out of this repository.
CVSROOT=:pserver:anonymous cvs fedora redhat com:/cvs/extras
export CVSROOT

Detailed checkout instructions are available on the CVS server's home page, at http://cvs.fedora.redhat.com/

For those that do not want to read instructions and want to get to the "bleeding edge" as fast as possible, we have daily checkout snapshots available at http://cvs.fedora.redhat.com/webfiles/

After unpacking your download, you can issue a "cvs update" to bring the tree in sync with the latest changes since the archive was created. If this is the first time accessing the Fedora CVS server, you will need to do a "cvs login", hit Enter when asked for a password, and then attempt the "cvs update".

ViewCVS is also available for both of these repositories if you prefer to browse through the packages:
- Fedora Core: http://cvs.fedora.redhat.com/viewcvs/?root=core
- Fedora Extras: http://cvs.fedora.redhat.com/viewcvs/?root=extras

There are also CVS-related mailing lists that you can subscribe to. these mailing lists publish the CVS commits as they happen. If you are curious, you can sign up for the mailing lists at the following links:
- Fedora Core:
- Fedora Extras:

Have fun,
