The public key for the 'testcvs' host is not in your
$HOME/.ssh/known_hosts file.

You might wish to use ssh-keyscan to see if the key looks likely.
Something like:

    ssh-keyscan -t rsa testcvs

to get the key printed out for you.

Or, if you are feeling brave... you could interactively do:

    'ssh testcvs date'

and if the RSA key fingerprint seems reasonable to you, go ahead and
allow ssh to add it to your known_hosts file.

For more information, consult your ssh manual pages.

Nothing. It is more likley that your 'testcvs' host has either upgraded
its SSH public key or that you have not previously tried to use that
host with the older version of cvs or that you previously used 'rsh'
rather than 'ssh' to contact the server.

        Good luck,
