Hi Developers,

the CVS servers are back online! Happy

This is the good news, the bad news is that the configuration has changed, the CVS server has now the new hostname That means you have to make a new development directory, do the initial checkout again using the new configuration and then install Orbiter 2006 into it as explained here:

If you have no changed, uncommitted files in your old development directory everything is fine now and you can continue as usual. If you have changed, uncommitted files in your old development directory you have to do a CVS Edit of the file in the new folder and re-do your changes. Please do not copy the entire file to the new folder nor copy and paste the complete content unless you're really sure that your changed file and the new file are based on the same version, dseagrav knows what I mean. Wink

Just in case you don't know there's a free tool called Winmerge ( ), which is very useful to compare files. It also integrates into TortoiseCVS, so it's used when you diff a changed file against the repository by using the context menu. I'll wait with committing my changes a few days to avoid CVS conflicts on your side.

I think we didn't lose any changes in the repository, the last commit was done on Mon May 8 04:24:16 2006 UTC by Swatch changing the LEVA vessel, if you did a commit later than that I'm wrong and you have to re-commit your changes.

The anonymous CVS server seems to be back online, too. But similar to the developers beta testers also have to re-do the initial checkout in a new folder as explained here: . I'll release new beta modules after we have the uncommitted changes back in CVS later next week.

I really hope that the CVS problems are over now and we'll again have a lot of fun developing and testing Project Apollo, if you need help or have questions about the new CVS servers please post here.
