Re: Not storing passwords in the filesystem

Right now on CVS :ext: (ssh) you have to set it up to automatically log in
to the server, so I would think that the default should be no save with
the option to save easily findable. Of course CVS :pserver: is just the
opposite, you have to login (which saves your password) and then it is
automatic...so.....tough call. I probably would err on the safe side and
not save the passwords by default.
