This is the log of my recent conversation with drobbins on IRC.
<nus> cvs [update aborted]: connect to gentoo.org(184.108.40.206):2401
failed: Connection refused. Do you have any idea what' going on?
<kibosh> yes, we're no longer offering anoncvs
<kibosh> it was too much of a resource drain.
<nus> but gentoo-src is only 7MB, why?
<nus> so many people interested in the build system? :-/
<kibosh> cvs is a resource hog
<nus> any other means to get at the sources? is there an rsync server
<kibosh> we need to get them on sourceforge so it doesn't drain *our*
<kibosh> our single server just can't handle it.
<kibosh> and we have very limited bandwidth.
<nus> well, there seem to be some rsync servers across the world already
offering the distro, why not push sources through them?
<kibosh> could be do-able.
<kibosh> post your request to email@example.com
So, could that please be arranged?
