#101196 CVS services issue


Hi. I am unable to check out/commit using ext protocol.

$ export CVS_RSH=ssh
$ cvs -z3
co -P source

ssh: connect to host cvs.sourceforge.net port 22:
Connection timed out
cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file from server
(consult above messages if any)

I get same message from TortoiseCVS too. Any ideas?

    Per the site status page:

    ( 2006-04-03 05:55:21 - Project CVS Service ) On
    2006-03-30 the developer CVS server had a substantial system
    failure. Due to the implementation of the CVS service, there
    is a single point of failure with multiple points of
    recovery (there is more than one data source we could
    potentially recover from if there is any data loss as a
    result of the failure). This outage currently affects
    developer CVS access directly, but we have disabled tarball
    updates and data syncs from the developer CVS server to the
    anonymous pserver/ViewCVS hosts as an additional level of
    precaution. Our main focus since the outage was detected has
    been to safegaurd all data on the developer CVS server as
    well as possible. We are currently attempting to backup the
    data on the host, which is taking longer than we initially
    anticipated it would, but is a necessary step to fully
    safegaurd the host's data. Next, we are going to perform
    some data validation to ensure the data set appears valid.
    Pending successful completion of those steps, we'll reenable
    developer CVS access. A few days after, we'll reenable CVS
    tarballs and syncs to anonymous CVS. In the mean time, we're
    currently advancing plans for a CVS architecture change
    based upon the knowledge we gained during Subversion
    deployment to eliminate the single point of failure that
    developer CVS currently has, add horizontal scalability and
    overall service resiliance. However, we still do not have an
    estimate on when developer CVS services will be restored,
    but we have been, and currently are actively working to
    restore access to CVS. We appreciate your patience with us
    while we work to properly resolve this major outage.


    ( 2006-04-03 14:04:56 - Project CVS Service ) As an
    update to the 2006-03-30 CVS outage, our current estimate is
    that CVS services will be back online (developer access)
    late Tuesday or early Wednesday (Pacific Timezone).

    Please keep an eye there for further updates to this issue:

    Thank you,
