You could read the instructions on
<URL:http://savannah.gnu.org/cvs/?group=emacs>.  There is no
registration required for an anonymous CVS checkout.

Anyway, I just tried an experimental tar+zip on my CVS tree (which is
not completely clean) and this resulted in 68MB.  So you might not
have the CVS backup of the Emacs repository, after all.  Try using it.

Anyway, Emacs is an extensible text processing platform and desktop
environment, so you should not compare its size to vi and edlin.
