        CVS Server is up and running folks. Thanks to Elliot Lee <> for helping with setting it up, Daniel Stenberg <> with his contributions and everyone else for being so patient while we make the transition from one place to another. There is still alot of work to be done with 'The Hyper Project' as I lovingly call it now. :) But together we'll all get there, helping one another.

        Now on to the info for the CVS server:


        The 'cvs' user doesn't have a password, so just hit return when it asks you for one. Also, the cvs user only has read access, so don't try to do anything funny. :)

        Currently imported sources are hypermail-2b3, -2b13 and -2a14. All three are accesible by the cvs user.

        For those of you who have never used a cvs server to grab sources, here's a short rundown of the thing:

     For sh, bash and ksh users, execute the following commands:
     export CVSROOT
     (or you can stick them in your .profile and/or .bash_profile file)

     For C shell users (csh, tcsh), you can do the following:
     setenv CVSROOT
     (or stick it in your .cshrc and/or .login file)

- From here you can login to the server with:
# cvs login (Logging in to CVS password: <-- hit RETURN (cvs user password is blank)
- Now you're ready to grab the source for whichever hypermail version
you want, 2b3, 2b13 or 2a14 (thanks to Daniel): # cvs checkout hypermail-<version> This will create a mirror of the sources in your account/on your machine called 'hypermail-<version>' that you can then compile and play with (just play safe and clean, ok?)
- Once done, don't forget to log out:
# cvs logout All of the above commands can be performed without having to set
a CVSROOT enviroment if you want, it's just a lot more to type in since you'll have to specify the directory every time with:


ej: cvs -d login
