I fear I may have misunderstood the problems with NFS and CVS. As the two
different threads in the archives on NFS didn't clarify the issue for me, I
hope someone can clarify.

I was under the impression that it was bad to share the CVS repository over
NFS, so hence I have kept our repository on local disks in a machine that is
accessed via SSH.

For various reasons, I was queried why the repository is not placed on a NFS
storage device, mounted on the CVS server which is then accessed via SSH. I
quoted the NFS sharing problems, but the person retorted saying he has
experienced large projects using NFS mounted on a frontend machine. Can
anyone comment on the reliability of this? I don't understand why the
problems would be any different simply by using a frontend machine. It's
still NFS with whatever problems it carries with it.

I prefer the dark of the night, after midnight and before four-thirty,
when it's more bare, more hollow.
