Setting up anonymous CVS access?
I would like to set up anonymous CVS access to a source tree on a
Debian-2.0 machine. I have installed the most recent Debian cvs
package (cvs-1.9.29-1) and run /usr/sbin/cvsconfig indicating that I
want a pserver to be run and where the repository is located.
I understand that now I should add a "passwd" file to CVSROOT and
probably also add a "readers" file where I list whatever login I
choose for anonymous access. A couple of questions are:
- what is the usual name of the login for anonymous access? "cvs", "anoncvs", ?
- once that name is chosen, how is the password or lack of password
represented in the CVSROOT/passwd file? Do I add a line like
to the file? This doesn't seem to be explained in the documentation.
Thanks for any assistance.
