Anonymous CVS not authorized

    Although I've always been able to do it before, I haven't been able to get the latest CVS update for 2 days. 

    $ cvs update -PAd
    cvs update: authorization failed: server rejected access to /cvsroot/mplayerplug-in for user anonymous

    And trying to browse the CVS repository generates the following error:

    The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server.
    The proxy server could not handle the request GET /

    Reason: Max-Forwards has reached zero - proxy loop?

      "Updates from within the module's directory do not need the -d parameter." 

      (It has worked for me with it though.)

      However, mplayerplug-in CVS is not working today [Wednesday, 06/02/04] for me either.

      All I get is:


      cvs [update aborted]: unrecognized auth response from M PserverBackend::PserverBackend() Connect (Connection refused)

        "cvs [update aborted]: unrecognized auth response from M PserverBackend::PserverBackend() Connect (Connection refused)"

        I get the same message now, whatever I try.  CVS updates work for all the other projects I use except for this one.

      From the SourceForge status page:

      (  2004-06-01 09:14:25 - Project CVS Service )   As of 2004-05-31 CVS pserver, ViewCVS and nightly tarballs for projects with UNIX names starting with the letters q, z, p, m, t, n and y will be down for an unknown time period due to a systems issue. We are currently working on a timely resolution to this issue.

        Yeah I finally saw it right after my last post (Duh!).  Fortunately, cvs updates now work.   By the way, my best respects for your outstanding program.  Being a mainframe developper,  I enjoy *nix but I'm definitely not as fluent in that environment.  Nevertheless, I can pretty well guess that you've put a lot of work in this gem.  Congratulations and many thanks from a happy user.
