I'm not sure what it is you have in mind. Presumably you want to execute a
little script of some kind and automatically log into some CVS server?
Here's a little perl to do create a key/value pair with a project name and
it's corresponding CVSROOT string. I don't do this sort of thing, but if it
helps you... you'll need to extend the text file to incorporate passwords;
or if you're using CVS 1.11.1p1 just include the password in the CVSROOT
string (someone correct me if I'm wrong). You might need to modify this for
your needs.

~/cvsroot.track (simple text file with key = value)
--- a text file ---
project = :pserver:user:address@hidden:/cvsroot

--- a simple script ---
#! /usr/local/bin/perl

$HOME = "/home/user";

my ($line, @project);
open(FILEHANDLE, "${HOME}/cvsroot.track");
        chop($line = $_);
        $line =~ s/\s+//g;
        # -- create %cvsroot_hash   -> binds cvsroot string with a key
        $cvsroot_hash{$project[0]} = $project[1];

# Do something with this
# such as login, etc. I'm just printing here.
while(($key,$value)=each %cvsroot_hash) {
        print "$key = $value \n";

# Sample login -- just supply the project name as ARGV[0]
# system( "/usr/local/bin/cvs -d $cvsroot_hash{$ARGV[0]} login" );
