Hi guys!

I thought I could duck and avoid this particular thread, but... :)

Well, SqCVS works, more or less. :) But the issue with SF is generally
the SSH stuff.

WinCVS + suitable SSH app + following SF instructions to the letter
ought to get you there.
It was a while since I did it myself. Peter Crowther seems to have up to
date knowledge so I will leave it to him to help you succeed! And WinCVS
is quite ok IMHO.

Regarding moving the whole lot off to SqF - sure. :) I agree. I could
try to see if I can make time to do it, but there are so many things to
do... If someone else with some CVS and Linux knowledge would care to do
it - perfect.

Personally I think we could start by simply just moving the whole CVS
repo "as is" and then set up a mirror or two for readonly access. SSH
doesn't seem necessary at this point IMHO.

Then we could look into trying Arch or some other of the newer more
capable SCMs around, but no point in changing everything at once.
