Hi Developers,

looks like SourceForge keeps us busy with their CVS problems:  Bangs Head

Quote
(  2006-07-13 09:23:52 - Project CVS Service, Project Shell Service, Project Subversion (SVN) Service, SourceForge.net Web Site  )  A recent kernel exploit was released that allowed a non admin user to escalate privileges on the host pr-shell1. We urge all users who frequent this host to change their password immediately and check their project group space for any tampering. As a precaution, we have blocked access to all project resources by password until the user resets their password. After the password has been reset, project resources should be accessible within 5 minutes.
 
 
To change your password:
1. Login to the SourceForge.net website (your old password will work for this, use the lost password feature if you cannot remember it).
2. Click on the 'Summary' option under the 'My Page' site menu.
3. Click on the 'Account Options' link.
4. Click on the '[Change Password]' link.
5. Fill out the password change form, click the Update button
6. Wait 5 minutes, all project resources should be accessible using the new password at that point in time.

So to access the CVS server please change your password as explained above, sorry for these annoyances...

Cheers
Tschachim
