You misunderstood, I think: first, anon CVS will continue to be
available; and second, it is _already_ available.  (That is, people
can check-out files, but the maintainers still cannot check-in new
code.)  Perhaps the Savannah staff didn't update their Web pages to
that effect yet.

You won't need to.  Anon CVS is limited to read-only access to the CVS
tree, and as such, its security requirements are much lower than for
people who want write access.
