Here is my understanding... Jonathan, feel free to smack me if I put my
foot in my mouth ;-)
(1) Absolutely anyone can have CVS access over ssh with an account.
(2) No one will have commit access (sans the current maintainers). It
It provides public CVS access WITHOUT anonymity to ANYONE who simply
Send an email to "spread at spread.org" and say.
"Hey my name is <name here> and I would like CVS access to Spread."
You will receive instructions on how to access it (standard CVS over
SSH) including the machine name, you log in and password.
If you would like to auth with an RSA or DSA ssh key, include your
public identity in your request email.
It is that simple or complicated - however you wish to view things :-)
