Re: Debugging cvspserver
This isn't a direct answer to your question but you may still find is
I've been using cvs with the pserve authentication. Several problems
* I could not use the system /etc/passwd file for authentication as
is supposedly possible per the documentation. Solution: define a
separate cvs passwd file.
* A remote checkout of a module that is composed of submodules
places the submodules incorrectly in the directory from which the
command was executed. Solution: do remote checkout, manually
relocate directories and patch CVS directory files.
