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. -- James Cameron mailto:quozl at us.netrek.org http://quozl.netrek.org/ -------------- 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: http://sourceforge.net/project/?group_id=968 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.
