CVSGrab 2.2.3-SNAPSHOT fails on spring-rich-c

  • Oliver Kaltenecker

    Hi there,

    I' trying to get the spring-rich-c via CVSGrab. I am using the following shell script:

    /opt/cvsgrab/ -proxyHost [myproxy] -proxyPort [myproxyport] -clean -prune -rootUrl -packagePath spring-rich-c > cvsgrab.log 2>&1

    As a result I am getting the following errors in cvsgrab.log:

    CVSGrab - -Using proxy [myproxy]:[myproxyport]
    CVSGrab - -CVSGrab version 2.2.3-SNAPSHOT starting...
    CVSGrab - -Detected cvs web interface: ViewVC 1.0.1

    Using the same with -rootUrl -packagePath xmltv works like a charm.

    So what am I doing wrong?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.
