You don't need to. When you first login (successfully) to any cvs
server, the password information is stored in an encrypted form in the
.cvspass file in your home directory. After this initial login, you
never need to use the "cvs login" command for that same server ever
again. (Yes, .cvspass saves passwords from multiple servers).

(Note: if you want to "forget" the password for a particular server,
you can run the "cvs logout" command, which will erase that password
from .cvspass. You will then need to run "cvs login" again for that
server before you can use it again.)
