The sourceforge anonymous CVS is a sick bastard. They continue to claim
they'll fix it "soon" but AFAIK, we still suffer from it.

Luckily, people with commit rights don't have the same problems and we build
the daily build packages etc using such an account.

The only reason we haven't moved the CVS over to be hosted somewhere else is
that we don't want the extra added maintanance.

If anyone reading this volounteers to admin a highly accessible CVS server for
us for the forseeable future, configure it to work like the one we use now
(commit-mails and viewcvs etc), and to make sure our herd of developers have
the correct access rights, then do mail us (Björn, Linus or me) and we might
consider moving the CVS repository.
