Hi Dirk,
 
I have used something in the past called cvs-grab (http://cvsgrab.sourceforge.net/) that used a viewcvs interface to download all of the sources from a remote repository.  If you would like to implement something like cvs-grab in #cvslib that would be great.  The first step would be to join the development mailing list, and then start submitting patches with test cases. 
 
Additionally it is possible to specify a port for a cvs checkout.  For some servers that are listening on port 80 (i.e. sourceforge) this is also helpful to get the sources inside a firewall.  I can't remember the status of this, but I believe if changes are necessary it should be pretty simple to make if you would like to look into this (and patch if needed) that would be great.
 
 
Cheers,
 
 
Clayton

Subject: [Sharpcvslib-developers] Implementing Proxy-Connection

Hi,

 

I’m using CVS for many year now. Since 6 months I’m behind a fire firewall. I can only use a proxy with authentication but the CVS-client does not support this authentication.

So I’d like to implement this in sharpcvslib.

I know a lot of internet protocols like HTTP, FTP, SMTP, POP3 and so on.

I hope I can join your team.

 

thanks

Dirk
