version control system check out


Say I'm interrested in contributing in debian-edu
and I'm looking for the version control system.

This is my trail & error:


scroll down to the bottom to get to

click on DebianEduToPackage to
that lists only some packages to be packaged.

Back to http://wiki.debian.net/?DebianEduToPackage
for the link to http://www.skolelinux.org

Being redirected to http://www.skolelinux.org/portal/

Clicked on contribute a.k.a. "get involved button"
( http://www.skolelinux.org/portal/contribute/ )

Link marked with "development"
did bring me to http://www.skolelinux.org/portal/contribute/development/
where promising title   Introduction
    An introduction for new developers 
 ( http://www.skolelinux.org/portal/contribute/development/introduction )

And yes:   CVS ACCESS 

The CVS primer
speaks about  cvs.skolelinux.org

Using viewCVS, I got old files
) or tarballs (
) but no recent version control system files.    :-((

So I left that dead looking trail.
However is it actually a death trail?
Should it be marked as such?

My next attempt was http://alioth.debian.org,
and yes it has a "debian-edu" project. (
http://alioth.debian.org/projects/debian-edu/ )

Another mouse click did bring me to
with a standard page that states to checkout 'modulename'

<sarcastic>yeah, right</sarcastic> the f*^Wfantastic modulename.

Browse the CVS repository (
http://cvs.alioth.debian.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/?cvsroot=debian-edu )
revealed five possible modules:

[DIR] debian-edu/
[DIR] debian-edu-install/
[DIR] html/
[DIR] security/
[DIR] src/

Starting with the first, debian-edu/ did bring me to
_without_ seeing any files.

Has some one in this mailinglist to power to delete that _empty tree_ in
the CVS repository?
If yes: What are you waiting for?
If no: Any proposals how people after me can avoid that time trap?

Okay up to debian-edu-install/
<sarcastic>Nice, only one emtpy directory</sarcastic>

As none webdesigner, I skipped html/


| Debian-Edu/Skolelinux Security team's cvs-repository
| ----------------------------------------------------
| This repository shall contain all sources for the non-Woody packages
| we are using in Debian-Edu/Skolelinux.

And nothing else in the security/ directory.

I suggest: take that _almost empty_ directory behind the barn and shoot it

In src/ (
) is

[DIR]  build/
[DIR] cronjobs/
[DIR] debian-edu/
[DIR] debian-edu-build/
[DIR] debian-edu-config/
[DIR] debian-edu-install/
[DIR] desktop-profiles/
[DIR] localization-config/
[DIR] xdebconfigurator/

My first pick was  debian-edu/
with most recent file 4 months ago.

xdebconfigurator was recently released, but xdebconfigurator/
freshed file is three _months_ old. That doesn't match
where an update packages is announce two _weeks_ ago.

So I still didn't found debian-edu version control system repository.

Which website update was missed (by me) ?
