Subject: [gentoo-dev] [ANNOUNCE] Anonymous CVS and SVN now available
Date: Sat, 11 Nov 2006 10:56:41
1 All-
3 KingTaco and I are pleased to announce that we've completed
4 setting up and testing the anonymous read-only CVS and SVN
5 services for Gentoo repositories, and that they are now
6 available for use.
8 The anonymous services are primarily intended help our
9 non-dev contributors easily produce patches and
10 modifications (cvs diff/svn diff), and provide easier access
11 to the source for gentoo-hosted projects.
13 For our more enthusiastic of users out there, please note
14 that the CVS and SVN services are NOT not more to date than
15 the rsync tree, and may be an additional 30 minutes behind,
16 based on load on various machines. Please do not switch to
17 using the CVS simple because you think it will get you the
18 tree faster, or make you cooler; compared to our rsync
19 distribution method, the anonymous services have
20 considerably less resources (both processing and bandwidth)
21 behind them. We will not hesitate to block IP addresses that
22 abuse this service.
24 cvs:
25 cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@××××××××××××××.org/var/cvsroot co <REPO>
27 CVS is limited to 5 concurrent users.
29 cvs has the following repos:
30 gentoo-projects gentoo
31 gentoo-x86 gentoo-src
33 svn:
34 svn co<REPO>/
36 svn has the following repos:
37 gli glsr devmanual sandbox baselayout
38 eselect apache livecd-tools hardened linux-patches
39 catalyst hwdata gentoo-python genkernel gentoo-syntax
40 gentoo-alt gentoo-vdr gentoolkit keychain portage
42 The frontpage of the service
43 maintains an accurate list of the repositories available, as
44 well as holding complete instructions and caveats.
46 Please file infra bugs for any problems that might come up.
48 The gzip blocking previously discussed has been removed, due
49 to bandwidth constraints on the part of the server. The
50 concurrent user limit has been lowered correspondingly.
52 Thanks go to: kengland, robbat2, kingtaco, ramereth, and
53 several others for helping this to happen.
