Ooops, just noticed you said 'automatically' (I guess it will be in a shell script somewhere). Anyway, the command:
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/eclipsexul co -P com.orangevolt.eclipse.xul
worked fine for me. If you want to checkout the latest sources (assuming you are a developer assigned to the project) you better do:
cvs -z3 -d:ext:developername at cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/eclipsexul co -P modulename
as sourcefourge indicates. Make sure to replace 'developername' and 'modulename' with valid info. Anonymous access lags your production repository by 5 hours or so.
