[Devel] IMPORTANT: Repository migration

finally SF fixed the CVS problem, both for developer's and anonymous 
CVS. There are some small changes/improvements regarding the CVS access:
     1) the hostname for CVS repository changed (new checkout required).
     2) ViewCVS improved
     3) sync delay for anonymous CVS reduced.

For full details about these changes, please see the copy of the news 
letter for SF, attached at the end.

All this changes were already reflected (info updated) on the project 
site. Please refer to the download or cvs section. Snapshot build was 
migrated to the new CVS, so, they are valid to be used.

For developers, the CVS access is opened again, so we can carry on with 
the preparation for release

As the CVS problem is fixed and rsync access is now allowed (for 
backup/mirroring purposes), the migration to SVN is delayed for after 
the release in order  not to  have additional  delays with the release.
For security reasons (to avoid what happened in the last weeks), an 
anonymous CVS will be configured on a non-SF server and synchronized 
from the developers CVS.


<SF letter>

1. Hostname for CVS service

Old: cvs.sourceforge.net

New: openser.cvs.sourceforge.net

This change will require new working copies to be checked out of all
repositories (so control files in the working copy will point to the
right place). We will be updating the instructions we supply, but
instructions that your team has written within documentation, etc. will
need to be updated.

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/openser co sip_server

would be changed to

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous at openser.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/openser co sip_server

2. ViewCVS

We are moving from ViewCVS to its successor, ViewVC. ViewVC is
currently in use for our Subversion service.

3. Sync delay

Old: CVS pserver, tarballs and ViewCVS provided against a separate
server which is a minimum of three hours behind developer CVS.

New: ViewVC will be provided against developer CVS (it will be current).
CVS pserver will be provided against a secondary server (not developer
server) with a maximum expected delay of two hours.

Follow-up work is planned (this infrastructure takes us 80% of the way)
to essentially eliminate the sync delay.
