Why not use WinCVS?  I'm pretty sure the user can even set his/her passwd in
line that specifies the repository. That would solve the retyping problem,
but at
the expense of some security/authentication.  Can anyone confimr this?
Larry, Greg,
anybody?  Again, this is a training/procedural problem.

The way to do this in WinCVS is by using an SSH private/public
keypair with no passphrase.

HOWTO is here :
