      I dig cvsmonitor a lot, thanks.

      It is very hard for me to set up a remote cvsmonitor though, and I wish locals were still enabled. What "permission issues" does Repository.pm refer to?

      Basically my cvs server is a very tight ship with only keyed ssh access. I can't think of any secure way to have cvsmonitor access it remotely, can you?

      The issue with local access is that cvs will access your cvs repository as the web user www-data, nobody, apache etc.

      These virtually NEVER have decent access to local repositories, so the options was pulled altogether.

      As for ssh access, it's a feature that someone will probably implement for 0.7. The main issue is that the main existing developers don't use it, and thus don't have access to a repository.

      Thanks Adam. I figured as much. My repo is world readable so I went through and added support for local repositories again. Still, I'm looking forward to an ssh-enabled cvs monitor so I don't have to run it on the same machine.
