Well, what *can* you access?
I recommend you try:

% apt-get install tla
% tla my-id Peter Milliken <>
% tla my-revision-library ~/tmp/arch-lib
% tla library-config --greedy ~/tmp/arch-lib
% tla register-archive
% tla get

The first 4 commands are to install&setup Arch.
The last-but-one is to tell where to find Miles Bader's Arch "repository".
The last one is to fetch his emacs--cvs-trunk--0 branch which the Arch
version of Emacs's CVS trunk (synchronized more or less daily).

Further updating of the checked out tree can be done with just

% tla star-merge --three-way
