There are multiple possibilities...

a) CVSup

   You could follow something like the setup given here:
   for your own cvs repository.

   You can get the sources for ezm3 and CVSup from

   I have used the 16.1g snapshot with no problems on a number of
   different platforms (including Solaris and GNU/Linux).

   Of course, it sounds like you would only want to run the CVSup update
   on a periodic basis when it is time to synchronize even if it might
   make more sense to just have the anonymous copy be exact all the

b) rsync

   Sources for rsync may be a part of your OS already, or you can
   get them from

   You should be able to use a guide like this one:

   to help you learn how to mirror trees on another server.

   For your case, you could consider pushing the sources from your
   primary repository to your anonymous server.

   You would want to run rsync when you know that you are ready for the
   anonymous copy to be updated... even if it might make more sense to
   always keep them synchronized...

c) use cvs export from the primary and cvs import on the secondary to
   keep only the exact files you wish available on the anonymous server.

        Good luck,
