Thanks. If you put a link to the Admin. area -> config description,
I'll be happy. That's the section I patched BTW.

Honestly, is one of the worst (if not the
one) sites I've seen as far as navigation is concerned.

Well, I wasn't interested in a binary. I wanted a source tarball.
I don't know the tag names (I suppose the repository is tagged with
every release), so it's kinda hard to checkout a particular version.

And, oh, checking out a WC on a system that doesn't have CVS installed
isn't the easiest task either. :)

Heh, you know what the problem was? I didn't try empty password. I tried
to get logged in guessing all possible passwords anonymous could have,
and it always failed. Seems like I'm the only one. Oh well.

What I did was: CVS Documentation -> Mailing Lists.

Am I really the only one having these issues with that site?
Nevermind, now that I know what to do / where to look, I'm ok.

I'm afraid I won't be able to do anything about this issue. What should 
I do with the patch then? I can put it on the web if you're interested.
If so, I'll check out a WC of CVS, and patch the current cvs.texinfo.

BTW, what I really miss in the CVS manual, KFogel's book, and at Pascal
Molli's tutorial is a section aimed at setting up CVS (beyond the 
"$ cvs -d /usr/local/repository init" note). Is these such info somewhere
I'm also missing?
