Unfortunately AOL (and instant messaging in general)
isn't accessible from the computers as my current
"day job". But it shouldn't be a problem when I am at
home (tomorrow).

I have continued to try to access the cvs repository but
I am unable to get past the password prompt that is
generated when I do

$ cvs address@hidden:/cvsroot/axiom co axiom
address@hidden's password:
Permission denied, please try again.
address@hidden's password:
Permission denied, please try again.
address@hidden's password:
Permission denied.
cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file from server

The documentation says that I would get this prompt if
my public key is not being recognized. But I have double
checked everything and I am quite sure that I have
generated the rsa1 key properly. I've set protocol 1 in
the ssh config file and I have uploaded the public key
to Savannah (and waited the appropriate amount of time).
So I don't think that's the problem. I also thought that
maybe the rather strict firewall rules here where I am
working might prevent an SSH connection, but the network
guru's here assure me that SSH should be possible -
although they warn that almost all non-standard port
usage is disabled. I know that the :pserver: protocol on
cvs uses port 2401 which I am quite sure is on the
disabled list, so that explains why anonymous mode also
does not work (if you have not done anything else to
prevent it).

Anyway, tomorrow I will try all this again from the other
side of the firewall from my other machines at home.

Also, in my spare time here I've been poking around the
source for CCL that I downloaded from the Codemist site.
My first attempts to build this under cygwin have been
unsuccessful. There seem to be a number of notes embedded
in make files etc. that need to be consulted and changed
before the make files, as downloaded, will run. There is
also a makemake.c bootstrap program that looks a little
more promising, but although it generated a new set of
make files, those also did not work on my first try.
I don't intend to spend much time on this, but I will let
you know if I make any progress.

I look forward to seeing (and helping to create) the well
documented noweb version of this stuff.
