Update to w.d.o/cvs

Attached is a proposed updated to the webpage in the DDP project that 
describes how CVS access needs to be obtained. Since Martin Schulze has 
been taking care of this lately I believe the document is no longer 
up-to-date and should be updated based on the information available at

If nobody is against this change I will make the change in a few days.
