For any who missed this post on -dev. gentoo-perl's svn repo has been added to
the co as of today. Not that there's necessarily much there, but help is always
a welcome thing.

KingTaco and I are pleased to announce that we've completed
setting up and testing the anonymous read-only CVS and SVN
services for Gentoo repositories, and that they are now
available for use.
The anonymous services are primarily intended help our
non-dev contributors easily produce patches and
modifications (cvs diff/svn diff), and provide easier access
to the source for gentoo-hosted projects.
For our more enthusiastic of users out there, please note
that the CVS and SVN services are NOT not more to date than
the rsync tree, and may be an additional 30 minutes behind,
based on load on various machines. Please do not switch to
using the CVS simple because you think it will get you the
tree faster, or make you cooler; compared to our rsync
distribution method, the anonymous services have
considerably less resources (both processing and bandwidth)
behind them. We will not hesitate to block IP addresses that
abuse this service.
cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com/var/cvsroot co <REPO>
CVS is limited to 5 concurrent users.
cvs has the following repos:
svn co http://anonsvn.gentoo.org/repositories/<REPO>/
svn has the following repos:
gli glsr devmanual sandbox baselayout
eselect apache livecd-tools hardened linux-patches
catalyst hwdata gentoo-python genkernel gentoo-syntax
gentoo-alt gentoo-vdr gentoolkit keychain portage
The frontpage of the service http://anoncvs.gentoo.org/
maintains an accurate list of the repositories available, as
well as holding complete instructions and caveats.
Please file infra bugs for any problems that might come up.
The gzip blocking previously discussed has been removed, due
to bandwidth constraints on the part of the server. The
concurrent user limit has been lowered correspondingly.
Thanks go to: kengland, robbat2, kingtaco, ramereth, and
several others for helping this to happen.
