It's my fault -- the change I committed on 2001-03-29 contained a
nefarious typo that broke read-only pserver access.  I've already
committed a fix, but that won't help CVS 1.11.1.  I've asked Derek Price
to either upgrade the cvshome.org server to the current developement
version or downgrade it to 1.11.  Here's a patch for the desperate:
