using cvs to access stable branch

russellf
With the recent release of two patches I have finally been forced to
come to grips with CVS and the source tree.

I have unpacked the source tarballs on the target machine and read through

http://www.openbsd.org/anoncvs.html#starting
and
http://www.openbsd.org/anoncvs.html#CVSROOT

following the examples in the latter:

-bash-3.00$ export CVSROOT=[hidden email]:/cvs
-bash-3.00$ cvs -q up -rOPENBSD_3_8 -Pd
ssh: connect to host anoncvs1.usa.openbsd.org port 22: Connection refused
cvs [update aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if
any)
-bash-3.00$ ssh anoncvs1.usa.openbsd.org
ssh: connect to host anoncvs1.usa.openbsd.org port 22: Connection refused


I'm confused...

Also http://www.openbsd.org/anoncvs.html#CVSROOT refers to the 'patch
branch' and 'current' --  I assume 'patch branch' is really stable ??

cheers, Russell

Doh!  Whose bright idea was it to get pf to send RST for outbound
dropped ssh sessions?  :) :)  If they had timed out I would have looked
for network problems...

I tried traceroute and got as far as the firewall.

Apologies for the noise :(

1) What is there to be confused about?  Try a different cvs mirror or
try again later.  Probably heavy load from everyone trying to pull
-stable at once.

2) AFAIK, the patch branch and the stable branch are one and the same.
 Note that these may not necessarily be the same as the release branch
with errata patches applied.
