Hi all,

Is there a way to suppress the password prompt when I do an update
using CVS? I am using the "ext" protocol in CVSROOT.

The reason why I need this is that I have an automated build process
(using CruiseControl) which uses ant to do CVS updates. And currently
CVS updates are not possible because I always get a password prompt
while running ant. And since this is an automated process I cannot
provide the password while it is running. I tried using the <cvspass>
ant task and it is correctly adding the password to the ".cvspass"
file, but it seems as if the password file is not being read for the

Thanks in advance,
