I have used something in the past called cvs-grab
(http://cvsgrab.sourceforge.net/) that used a viewcvs interface to
download all of the sources from a remote repository. If you would like
to implement something like cvs-grab in #cvslib that would be great.
The first step would be to join the development mailing list, and then
start submitting patches with test cases. =20
Additionally it is possible to specify a port for a cvs checkout. For
some servers that are listening on port 80 (i.e. sourceforge) this is
also helpful to get the sources inside a firewall. I can't remember the
status of this, but I believe if changes are necessary it should be
pretty simple to make if you would like to look into this (and patch if
needed) that would be great.

Subject: [Sharpcvslib-developers] Implementing Proxy-Connection
I'm using CVS for many year now. Since 6 months I'm behind a fire
firewall. I can only use a proxy with authentication but the CVS-client
does not support this authentication.
So I'd like to implement this in sharpcvslib.
I know a lot of internet protocols like HTTP, FTP, SMTP, POP3 and so on.
I hope I can join your team.
