Thank you. It is better: Features #1 (extssh in the enumeration) and #2
(:extssh: is recognized when it occurs in CVS/Root) are now implemented.
And when I have CVS_RSH set to "ssh", it works. But when I have CVS_RSH not
set, "cvs log" just hangs. "pstree" and "ps" show that it's waiting on an
rsh command:

       │         ├─xterm───bash─┬─cvs-1.11.xx───cvs-1.11.xx───rsh

dev.eclipse.org cvs server

This is for cvs 1.11.xx branch.

For cvs 1.12.xx it hangs the same way, if I set CVS_RSH=rsh:

     │         ├─xterm───bash─┬─cvs-1.12.xx───cvs-1.12.xx───rsh

Only in cvs 1.12.xx. In cvs 1.11.xx, apparently not:
  $ grep RSH_DFLT config.h
  #define RSH_DFLT "rsh"

And the :extssh: should also work if someone has configured it with
or if CVS_RSH is set to "rsh".

That was just a consistency fix; it did not change the behaviour in the
default case.

So, what's still missing, is part #3: Use "ssh" as remote shell,
regardless of the CVS_RSH environment variable. This is the point of
"extssh", as I explained in

This attached patches do it (both tested).
