The FSF folks who manage cvs.savannah.gnu.org where the gnubg sources are stored upgraded this server a few days ago :


This was apparently supposed to be transparent, but I had a minor issue regarding the cvs root. In the above message they write :

anonymous read-only cvs checkouts, both cvs and webcvs. Example:
 cvs -d:pserver:address@hidden:/sources/<project> co <module>

SSH access (read-only for all savannah users, write access for project members):
 cvs -z3 -d:ext:<USER>@cvs.savannah.gnu.org:/sources/<project> co <module>

But I had cvs.savannah.gnu.org:/cvsroot/gnubg as root path. I didn't invent the "cvsroot" part so it must be what was in gnubg's docs when I joined the project. I suppose there was some renaming at some point at savannah and I missed it.

The backward compatibility of cvsroot as path apparently stopped with the recent upgrade, so if you cannot access the repository any more, you may want to check the cvs root you use and change it if needed.
