Hai Matthew,
Thanks for your reply.
My question was how to see the list of modules in the repository in which
i have read access.
For example I know that jakarta sub project has many modules.I wan to list
all the modules in the repository

My another query was where on the server side(which file) cvs server keeps
to store the information about each user who has logged in.
Say I am logging in to local cvs server from the cvs client like
`cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/opt/cvsroot login`
After successful login it creates an entry in the .cvspass in my home
directory like,
":pserver:address@hidden:/opt/cvsroot Aedh0ed"
According to my understanding for each operation on the server,this magic
string ("Aedh0ed") has to be sent to the server by the client("just like
HTTP COOKIES").For that the server has to validate this magic string on
the server side ......?where it will keep the info to validate against?

with regards
kamesh jayachandran

Call me stupid [ Chorus: "You're stupid, Linus" ], but I actually compiled
and booted this remotely.
