Unable to use CVS account

Hi Roy,

have you tried to access CVS as anonymous user? Check this page, you
don't need anything special but a cvs application:


Also, I think the information on these pages is incomplete, because
you also have to export CVS_RSH environment variable. If CVS fails

cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot exec rsh: No such file or directory

then you will have to export CVS_RSH variable also. For instance, do
the following on the command line:

CVSROOT=:ext:mcisback at cvs.fedoraproject.org:/cvs/docs


Also, you should request membership to cvsdocs group, since
docs-common module contains some mandatory files to be created, and
you will need membership on cvsdocs group in order to create them (you
don't need cvsdocs membership if they exist for your language). See
also http://docs.fedoraproject.org/translation-quick-start-guide/en/sn_translating_docs.html.

Hope this helps!
