Browse the CVS Tree

Though CVS repositories are most commonly accessed using a special piece of software called a CVS client, we also provide a web-based interface to view CVS repositories. Browsing the CVS tree gives you a great view into the current status of this project's code. You may also view the complete histories of any file in the repository.

About CVS

CVS (Concurrent Versions System) is a tool used by many software developers to manage changes within their source code tree. CVS provides the means to store not only the current version of a piece of source code, but a record of all changes (and who made those changes) that have occurred to that source code. Use of CVS is particularly common on projects with multiple developers, since CVS ensures changes made by one developer are not accidentally removed when another developer posts their changes to the source tree.

Information about accessing this CVS repository may be found in our document titled, "CVS (Version Control for Source Code)".

In order to access a CVS repository, you must install a special piece of software called a CVS client. CVS clients are available for most any operating system. Information about CVS client software may be found in our document titled, "Recommended User Software Configuration".


Anonymous CVS Access

This project's SourceForge.net CVS repository can be checked out through anonymous (pserver) CVS with the following instruction set. The module you wish to check out must be specified as the modulename. When prompted for a password for anonymous, simply press the Enter key. To determine the names of the modules created by this project, you may examine their CVS repository via the provided web-based CVS repository viewer.

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@oaiarc.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/oaiarc login
 
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@oaiarc.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/oaiarc co -P modulename

Information about accessing this CVS repository may be found in our document titled, "CVS (Version Control for Source Code)".

Updates from within the module's directory do not need the -d parameter.

NOTE: UNIX file and directory names are case sensitive. The path to the project CVSROOT must be specified using lowercase characters (i.e. /cvsroot/oaiarc)


Developer CVS Access via SSH

Only project developers can access the CVS tree via this method. A SSH client must be installed on your client machine. Substitute modulename and developername with the proper values. Enter your site password when prompted.

Project administrators may limit CVS access to this repository using cvs_acls or the CVS access member permissions option. Developers may verify their CVS access status on the admin page for this project.

A significant amount of information about project CVS services may be found in our "CVS (Version Control for Source Code)".

Developers may also make use of shared SSH keys for authentication.

export CVS_RSH=ssh
 
cvs -z3 -d:ext:developername@oaiarc.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/oaiarc co -P modulename

NOTE: UNIX file and directory names are case sensitive. The path to the project CVSROOT must be specified using lowercase characters (i.e. /cvsroot/oaiarc)
