Topic: Anonymous CVS Access Ever Coming Back?
If I wanted to examine the codebase for older revisions, will this ever come back? I noticed from an old litestep.devel thread it has not been active for a while. I tried yesterday from my own Win 7 32-bit laptop with CVS installed via Cygwin.
$ cat cvs-litestep.bash
$ echo $CVSROOT
$ cvs login
Logging in to :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:2401/cvs/litestep
cvs [login aborted]: connect to lsdev.org(220.127.116.11):2401 failed: Connection timed out
I have tried multiple times over the last week or so, and I assume that old litestep.devel post describes the state of affairs up until now.
And yes, I know there is a Github repo, but that looks like it was only the last commit from CVS or zip folder added to a git repo and pushed to Github.
I assume from further research the State of the Shell explains why history dead-ends around 2011. Does anyone have a full copy of CVS anywhere? Am I screwed?
Thanks for LiteStep. I became familiar with it from customizing it years ago for a job where we were building kiosks. At the time it was, to me, the coolest open-source project for Windows, hands down. It was a delight to learn from. Thanks then and now.
