Strange.  Does the remote site have to see the detailed revision
history?  If not, I would just use cvs export to send them tarballs
of tagged releases.  They can import the tarballs into their own
independent CVS repository.  They can send you patches when they
make significant changes, and they can reimport and merge when you
make significant changes.

In other words, you pretend they are a privileged customer, they
pretend you are a responsive vendor.

Your distribution method is unconventional, but they can still
generate patches and send them to you.

If you want tighter integration of the two sites, you're going to need
some sort of network...
