Yeah, cvs has been broken for waaay to long now. They seem to forget that many many things depend on their cvs. Many OpenSource projects develop through cvs, and for many users it cuts off their 'cutting edge' version downloads. Some linux distributions ( like gentoo ) automatically connect to sourceforge's cvs to install certain software ( some emerge's are cvs only ). All this is broken now. It's a bit disastrous. I hope they fix it soon. But when it's fixed it will be better than before, hopefully.
