Summary: The old coreutils CVS is now marked read-only.

Details: Recently one of the other projects on Savannah moved from CVS
to GIT.  They wanted to mark the old CVS source repository as
read-only to ensure that no developers accidentally committed to it.
And to have it produce a useful error message upon accidental commit
to it.  That seemed useful.  And useful to other projects that move
too.  I added a commitinfo hook for them in a way that I hope will be
useful to other projects.  I wanted to test the configuration on a
test project.  Hmm...  Which could I use?

The old coreutils had been in CVS too.  It was useful to me to test
the functionality there.  As a very trivial administrivia point I have
marked the old coreutils CVS repository as read-only and a message
that the CVS location is obsolete and has been moved is emitted.  I
thought I would send a notification here about it.
