Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 429502
CVS does not support connecting via HTTP proxies
Last modified: 2015-02-01 17:47:59 EST
Description of problem:
To download the OSS code, I cannot use the cvs command via HTTP proxies
because of the version of cvs(1.11).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. connect to a download site via HTTP proxies by cvs command
# cvs -d
cvs login: WARNING: Ignoring method options found in CVSROOT:
cvs login: Use CVS version 1.12.7 or later to handle method options.
Logging in to :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:2401/data/cvs
Unknown host libvirt.org.
I cannot connect via HTTP proxies by cvs command
I can use the HTTP proxies with cvs command
I confirmed that I can connect via HTTP proxies by 1.12.13 of cvs.
So I expect the CVS version 1.12.7 or later will be supported for RHEL/fedora.
This is a updating request for CVS version package.
So, I close this bug as 'NOTABUG'.
