CVS_RSH for :ext: CVS access
I've set up several Debian systems and loaded the cvs package on them. I've
had no problem using:
$ cvs -d :ext:myacct@mybox:/home/cvsrep checkout myproject
Now I have to do some work on a RH8 box to solve a particular problem. I
found that I had to do this:
$ CVS_RSH=ssh; export CVS_RSH
to get the command above to work.
On the Debian system, when I query evironments vars, I do not set CVS_RSH
set. Why do the Debian systems allow the :ext: access method to work without
having the CVS_RSH var set?
