    tux ferris $ cvs -z3 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 ..

    cvs --version

      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.
