When I had a look for it on Sunday morning, I found the following
mappings (from memory):

Both were 127.0.0.* addresses, and neither was valid - the only valid
127.* addresses here are and !!!

I've just tried again, and see the following mapping at the moment:

I'm not sure whether there should be two IP's for the cvs server, but I
see two in response to the `host` command here, although
only one shows up to `host` at this time.

Based on that, I've just done `cvs update -d -P` from the directory I
downloaded the CVS tree to, and get...

===8<=== CUT ===>8===

$ cvs update -d -P
cvs [update aborted]: connect to
        failed: connection refused

===8<=== CUT ===>8===

...which is the same message, but with an IP address that is at least
valid - the previous one was not. In case it helps, I've enclosed a
traceroute to when it selected that IP...

That I'm certainly glad to hear.

If I was in a position to do so, I'm sure I would. Ufortunately, I'm
also the possessor of far too much free time, for similar reasons :(

Best wishes from Riley.
