Firstly, this is not the appropriate mailing list.  Use the 
vanilla-clients mailing list for client side problems.  ;-)
This is where COW's response e-mail address is directed, and where
Kurt lurks, I think.

Secondly, the information in CVS itself on how to access CVS
is not consistent with the instructions you read at cow.netrek.org.

I'll attach the README.CVS file.

-------------- next part --------------

The whole COW source is source-controlled with CVS under sourceforge.net  

Server is:  cowsrc.netrek.org
CVS path:   /cvsroot/netrek
CVS module: cow

For web access use:

To get the COW source now from the CVS tree set the CVSROOT variable to

:pserver:anonymous at cowsrc.netrek.org:/cvsroot/netrek

Login on the server with no password:

cvs login

and checkout the whole COW src tree with:

cvs -z3 co cow

All COW developers should get a login at sourceforge.net and send the ID
to 007 at netrek.org so that it can be added.

Developer be careful read/write access is only available over SSH with

export CVS_RSH=ssh 
cvs -z3 -ddevelopername at cowsrc.netrek.org:/cvsroot/netrek co modulename
