No

I am unable to access any projects which require my CVS
authentication. My password is accepted but then I get
the message:

Cannot access /cvsroot/jython/CVSROOT
No such file or directory

I am able check this project out anonymously however.
This happens for all at least zxpy as well.

thanks,

brian

    Greetings,

    The issue you have cited is covered by the Site Status page
    (link in left navbar); text shown below:

    ( 2004-05-03 05:41:25 - Project CVS Service ) As of
    2004-04-28 the CVS services will no longer function with the
    hostname of cvs.PROJECTNAME.sourceforge.net. You should
    change your CVS commands to use the host cvs.sourceforge.net
    (the fix for this under all platforms is to perform a
    checkout into a new directory using the new hostname) and
    that should resolve any outstanding issues that you may have
    (this includes issues relating to the SSH host key change
    warning, among others). This issue came about as a result of
    upgrading from BIND 8 to BIND 9 which doesn't allow for a
    wildcard in the middle of a hostname.

    Should you have further questions or concerns regarding this
    matter, please add a comment to this request.

    Thank you,
