OK - howdy :)

OK - on issue here applies only to us unfortunate souls that do not have
direct access to a public server, and therefore need to work with a low cost
ISP. Unfortunately my ISP has removed CVS recently from the server set up...
so this is going to be hard.

It is a lot easier to install Apache modules with an ISP than CVS - so
anyone have any suggestions as to how to get Subversion to update a CVS
Sourceforge repository automatically?

An ideal would be a built in commit_to_cvs module - no fancy stuff, that
would all be done in Subversion. Another option is to have a public service
/ web service for this...
