I observed an Email launch error when checking in the Brown University sources. Looks like a server is down? For a typical case:

 

$ cvs commit -m "Added a Brown University Build Option" CMakeLists.txt

Checking in CMakeLists.txt;

/cvsroot/vxl/vxl/CMakeLists.txt,v  <--  CMakeLists.txt

new revision: 1.45; previous revision: 1.44
