Access, CVS & submitting updates

2.5. Access, CVS & submitting updates

The canonical location for the HOWTO is here.

We now have anonymous CVS access available to the world at large. This is good in a number of ways. You can easily upgrade to newer versions of this HOWTO and submitting patches is no work at all.

Furthermore, it allows the authors to work on the source independently, which is good too.

$ export CVSROOT=:pserver:anon@outpost.ds9a.nl:/var/cvsroot
$ cvs login
CVS password: [enter 'cvs' (without 's)]
$ cvs co 2.4routing
cvs server: Updating 2.4routing
U 2.4routing/2.4routing.sgml

If you spot an error, or want to add something, just fix it locally, and run cvs diff -u, and send the result off to us.

A Makefile is supplied which should help you create postscript, dvi, pdf, html and plain text. You may need to install docbook, docbook-utils, ghostscript and tetex to get all formats.
