I had just started doing this when I got this message. I had pretty much
already done all of these so it is good that we are thinking alike.

I added it to the Subclipse feature because that is where the click-thru's
come from. Is that OK?

Yes, done.

Yes, done.

I will look for some place to add it in the help.

This isn't our decision, it is just the way tigris.org works. When the
repository moved under the control of tigris.org, this happened. AFAIK,
the account guest/guest works for all tigris.org repositories (making the
whole policy kind of stupid anyway). Otherwise, your tigris.org account
works.

The tigris.org repository browser (based on ViewCVS) does not require
authentication.
