Apologies for touching on a sore spot.  I haven't lurked long enough
to know the general vibe of this newsgroup.  I absolutley understand
your point, and if it makes you feel better, we do hire from the
community when we need assistance. In fact,  I recently had the
pleasure of working with Ximbiot on a project.

I assumed that the folk gathered here were not just about GPL and CVS,
but more focused on quality software projects and configuration

Regardless, if you were to remove any mention of replication from my
post, it boils down to the same thing - broken pipe error in loginfo,
and possible workarounds.

Well, I've been moving and reconfiguring repostiories for about 30
hours straight now, and I think I'll crash.  

Take care,
