    Hello. I`m trying to checkout sources from CVS.

    <pre>
    tux ferris $ cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@witme.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/witme login
    Logging in to :pserver:anonymous@witme.cvs.sourceforge.net:2401/cvsroot/witme
    CVS password:
    tux ferris $ cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@witme.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/witme co -P libferris
    cvs checkout: Updating libferris
    cvs checkout: Updating libferris/Ferris
    cvs checkout: Updating libferris/FerrisUI
    cvs checkout: Updating libferris/Indexing
    ...
    tux ferris # ls -al
    total 8
    drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 4096 2008-04-28 17:46 .
    drwxrwxr-x 20 root src  4096 2008-04-28 17:21 ..
    </pre>

    cvs --version
    Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.12.12 (client)

    I`m trying 'cvs co' on other linux boxes, but got same result:(

      Please use the released tarballs. While source control is in place, there is no free public access to the revision control system used by the ferris project. If you are interested in contributing (the only reason you might be trying to use cvs) then please write to the mailing list with your intentions & we can work something out regarding patches.

      Thank you.
