[Spread-users] CVS server unavailable?

I'm currently unable to update my working copy from cvs.spread.org.  The SSH 
server is no longer accepting connections on port 23, and AFAIK I am not in 
the CVSROOT/avail file so the pserver is of little use to me.  I'd like to be 
able to update my working copy to the latest from CVS.  How should I proceed?

spread$ cat CVS/Root
spread$ echo $CVS_RSH
spread$ cvs up
ssh: connect to host cvs.spread.org port 23: Connection refused
cvs [update aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if any)
spread$ nmap cvs.spread.org
Starting nmap V. 3.00 ( www.insecure.org/nmap/ )
