Yes. Thank you.

May I suggest to improve  slightly the documentation about this topic,
at  least, adding  a  top-level  pointer titled  'Setting  up the  CVS
server' to  the right section. 

For now, learning  how to set up a CVS server  incurs going thru these
nodes in the CVS documentation:

  * Repository::
    * Remote repositories::
      * Password authentificated::
        * Password authentication server::

Do anybody feel that their titles are obvious?
