That is indeed the case: If you haven't logged into the local shell box,
you can't do ext CVS.

Can't you use anonymous CVS access?
cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@...:/cvsroot/mantisbt
instead of the :ext: mechanism. You won't be able to do commits, but you
should be able to checkout, update and use "cvs diff" to make patches.
I just looked in /home/users/s/sc/ on sourceforge and there is no scoates
there... perhaps you only get shell access when you are added as a member
to a project?

Right. But the problem seems to be with logging in to SSH, not with CVS,
I set up a new OpenSSHd last night, and it was a pain to get PAM working.
Maybe they're having the same problem at SF? Also, home directories aren't
created until you've successfully logged in via SSH, so that would explain
my lack of home.
Anyway, thanks for the Anonymous CVS access. I'll create patches, in the

All is good.
I've been granted Shell Access. In fact, you don't get access until you've
been granted 'member' status.
Thanks again for the help, and sorry for the "newbieish" question.
Hopefully I'll be able to better contribute to the Mantis project, now.
