Description of problem:
Red Hat should make it easy for users to set up client/server CVS.
Deficiencies as I see them currently:
1) No default CVSROOT. No guidance on where it should go, either.
2) No /etc/profile.d scripts to set default CVS variables
3) No /etc/xinet.d config file for client/server CVS
4) No cvs password admin utilities
5) No default cvs user
I recognize there are security concerns with client/server CVS but there are
with services such as FTP as well...the FTP servers come with xinetd config
files so they can be enabled/disabled by a knowledgable user. The command
needed to start a CVS server from xinetd takes some digging.
I recognize this a relatively significant feature request and appreciate your
taking the time to review it.

not going to change unfortunately as there are no real standards to

the only thing that is under consideration is the addition of xinetd
files for the cvs server. that is addressed in a different bug (bug
