Anonymous CVS access for DENX Source Code

ALERT! Note: The old CVS repositories are not available anymore. However, we offer emulated CVS access to our git repositories for people who want or need to access our code with a CVS client.

Please use the git repositories directly if at all possible.

We use git-cvsserver to offer you emulated CVS access. This is not an 1:1 emulation though, so please read the following instructions carefully to understand the changes in semantics.

Note: The cvsweb web interface (at http://www.denx.de/cgi-bin/cvsweb/) doesn't exist anymore. Please use the gitweb interface at http://git.denx.de/.

Differences in semantics between cvs and git-cvsserver

Summary:

Use the following command to checkout a git repository via CVS:

cvs -z0 -d :pserver:anonymous@git.denx.de:/module.git co -P branch
(Where branch is usually master)

(For comparison the previous checkout command for the CVS repository:

cvs -z6 -d :pserver:anonymous@www.denx.de:/cvsroot co -P module
)

If you have a CVS client that still needs a login even for repositories that have no password (most clients should handle that transparently by now), you will need to do the following step first:

cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@git.denx.de:/module.git login

When prompted for the "CVS password:" just press the return key (empty password). Note that you will need to do that for each module you want to check out.
