I think I don't understand. If I log into a machine and use 'cvs
init' to create a CVS repository in my home directory, that's still
not enough. Somebody *still* has to set up inetd to answer cvs
requests, no? Or do I totally misunderstand? Isn't there *some*
kind of server picking up the line, which needs to be configured?
Does sshd just magically know how to run cvs?
