    When I try to use CVS to download the source tree I get back this error -

    In C:\Documents and Settings\TCash\Desktop\Dile: "C:\Program Files\TortoiseCVS\cvs.exe" "-q" "checkout" "-P" "Dile"

    cvs.exe [checkout aborted]: Error reading from server 0: No such file or directory

    Error, CVS operation failed

      Unfortunately, you're right. I can't even login to the anonymous server...
      I'm afraid the reason is SourceForge's recent problems with the CVS service.
      According to the site status (

      "( 2006-04-06 13:04:54 - Project CVS Service )   As result of the 2006-03-30 CVS outage, and previous CVS outages, some CVS repositories do not exist on the anonymous/ViewCVS CVS hosts. This will result in proxy errors and other various unusual results when trying to access those hosts."

      However the developer CVS access is working fine and that's why I haven't noticed this problem.

      What I can offer you is that I can send the source code of DILE v0.2.2 if you give me your e-mail address (send it to, I promise I won't share it with anyone)...
      And I'll also check out how to migrate the source code to SVN. I prefer using SVN anyway...
