We have ~50 freebsd servers here where I work. Rather
than cvsup'ing all of 'em from geographically local
sites, I've built a box to house a cvs repository.
I built net/cvsup and net/cvsup-mirror, and installed
both. It's done the initial cvsup of the entire
repository, and everything looks fine on that end.
Tonight, I wanted to test it, so decided to have the
box cvsup itself from it's repository.
It failed. Here's the cvsup output:
mirrorbox# cvsup -g -L 2 ~/stable-supfile

/var/log/cvsupd.log gives the same information, as
does syslog. I've been working on this most of the
