The repository set for CVS is invalid

  • my code resides in a CVS repository. I can checkout the contents of the CVS repository using the Tortoise CVS client using the following CVS ROOT:

    :pserver;password=12345678:myusername@project1.cvs.mycompany.com:/cvsroot/project1

    I have created an entry in the codestiker.conf for the CVS repository as

    @valid_repositories =
        (
    ':pserver;password=12345678:myusername@project1.cvs.mycompany.com:/cvsroot/project1'
        );

    When I try to create a topic, I enter values for
    title, description, module, email, reviewers, cc.

    But I get the error

    No filename or module/tags were entered.
    The repository value set for ":pserver;password=12345678:myusername@project1.cvs.mycompany.com:/cvsroot/project1" is invalid.
    Please correct this value in your codestriker.conf file, and try again.

    I have specified correct module name as defined in the CVS. my CVS ROOT string is also correct because I have copy pasted this from the Tortise CVS client. So why am I getting this error?
