[DotGNU]Setting up developer CVS access

I'm forwarding this to the list, because other developers
may be interested in what they need to do to set up
CVS write access.  For CVS read access, see the
instructions for anonymous CVS on Savannah.

You must set ssh to use the right protocol.  Put the following
in your ~/.ssh/config file:

Protocol 1

The "address@hidden" is just the key identifier.  It doesn't
really matter what it is.

You also need to set "CVS_RSH=ssh" in your environment,
or cvs will use rsh instead of ssh.  Here is a script that I use,
called "cvsgnu":

export CVS_RSH=ssh
export CVS_DOTGNU='address@hidden:/cvsroot/dotgnu-pnet/'
cvs -z3 -d$CVS_DOTGNU $*

Put your own Savannah userid into the script, instead of
"rweather", of course.  Then do "cvsgnu co pnet".

I hope this helps.  It's a bit of a fiddle, but works like
a charm once everything is in place.
