Maybe this can help you (part of a news message on savannah.gnu.org):

(2) Anonymous CVS access will continue, but pserver access has been 
discontinued. We realize that many have become accustomed to this 
form of anonymous access, but we found many security problems in 
pserver and we must avoid it. Anonymous access can now occur via 
SSHv2. To do so, use the following CVSROOT: 


So, for example, to get an anonymous checkout of the GNU Emacs 
sources, you would run the following on the bash command line: 

export CVS_RSH="ssh" 
cvs -d :ext:<address@hidden:/cvsroot/emacs> co emacs 

The first time you do this, you will be prompted by SSH to 
authenticate the server's key fingerprint. See (3) below for 

Note that since only SSHv2 is accepted, you must be sure that your 
~/.ssh/config does indicate use of "Protocol 1" with 
savannah.gnu.org and savannah.nongnu.org. 

If you are absolutely unable to use this method for anonymous 
access, and you rely on anonymous access, please contact 
<<address@hidden>>. Since SSH is now ubiquitously 
available on Free Software systems, we believe that requiring SSH 
to be installed locally to gain anonymous access from savannah is 
not burdensome. If it turns out to burden you, please contact us. 

In fact, this new method authenticates and secures all anonymous 
access, and anonymous users are now safe from person-in-the-middle 
attacks when they verify the SSH host keys.
