After quite a few problems and delays, the SmartFrog CVS server, hosted
in SourceForce, is finally back.
The good news is that ViewVC (web cvs access) will be provided against
developer CVS and therefore it will be always showing the current files.
Also, the anonymous CVS access will be provided against a secondary
server (not developer server) with a maximum expected delay of two
The bad news is that the new CVS uses a new hostname and this change
will require new working copies to be checked out of all repositories
(so control files in the working copy will point to the right place).
The changes are:=20
"cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@...:/cvsroot/smartfrog co -P
would be changed to
Also, the CVS content uploaded by SourceForce in this new infrastructure
was older than the content we had when it crashed and we had to manually
patch it. This is already finished.=20
For more details about how to check out and build SmartFrog, see:
Time now to recover part of the time lost dealing with CVS problems.=20
PS: We are planning to move from CVS to Subversion in a new future. But
we first need to be sure that SourceForge SVN infrastructure is stable
and offers all the features that we need.=20
