If you wish to sync 15 machines and plan on doing that a lot, it would 
benefit you to setup a private cvs mirror.

You use 1 machine as your mirror, it syncs say once a day or week or 
hour whatever off the main cvs mirror sites.

You then have your other machines sync off that.   This would ensure all 
your systems are kept in line with the same src.

This would save on bandwidth for both yourself and the mirror sites.

Cheers,

Jeff
