Getting ViewCVS

For those that are behind corporate firewalls, thus can not use pserver
cvs access even on ports other than 2401, I found the following bit of

ghtlytarballs> &group_id=1#nightlytarballs

The result of this is that you can get a backup of the ViewCVS
repository by using the following URL


The contents of the tarball is a CVS repository. In my case, the file
was uncompressed by my browser as it downloaded, so I did not need to
unzip it. Therefore, I did the following steps to get the CVS HEAD copy
of viewcvs.

# extract the contents with tar to a directory called
tar -xvf viewcvs-cvsroot.tar.gz
# set a proper CVSROOT
export CVSROOT=/home/rhensle/viewcvs
# check out viewcvs from my local repository to a temp directory
mkdir temp
cd temp
cvs co viewcvs

Now the HEAD copy of the viewcvs is in /home/rhensle/temp/viewcvs.

BTW, this works for any sourceforge.net project.
