cvs - success!! / help + more

Hey Tommy and Patrick,

I followed what you said and success!! I have access to the cvs tree and can see all. I am able to see the files such as ones in docs-common, but what commands can i issue to be able to open them, to read through and cehck for errors and edit (i did see you have to set a file as watched before editing??) i can see the tree when i issue the command cvs -t co -c, but what are the basic commands to open folders and open files to view and edit??

Obviously at this point it would be good to know just what rules there are. i have read the rules on the wiki, but id like to know what "In-house" etiqute is performed. For example to start with if i am reading through and notice a spelling / grammar error, a) how do i edit said file and b) whats is the procedure, as in do i contact the owner directly or through mailing list??

And again thank you for help. The solution was as said. I needed to get another ssh key and upload that, since i was still using a root one. this has been corrected and i am now a non-super user account. it was habit to log in to terminal and su, but i have stopped doing so.

Try running the cvs command using the "-t" switch to turn on tracing
of the communications.  Unless you have already set your SSH passphrase
with the ssh-add program, the first thing you should see is the CVS server
asking for your passphrase; this is how my trace starts:

$  cvs -t co -c
