There have been lots of descriptions of how to do this posted to this
list in the past.  I suggest you research and/or

You might also find suggestions about how to do anonymous read-only SSH
access to CVS in some NetBSD-related forums -- NetBSD has such as
service running now for their source repo.

Note that regardless of how you provide anonymous read-only access it
should undoubtably be done on a separate machine with a separate copy of
the repository.  Do not trust mixed anonymous read-only access and
commit access to the same files!
