Quick Start Guide
First, you need to do, just once
<long cvs checkout line>
Hmmh, there is a long login line, not checkout line, below the text
you quote above (http://www.xemacs.org/Develop/cvsaccess.html#quickstart
First, you need to do, just once:
$ cvs -d :pserver:cvs＠cvs.xemacs.org:/pack/xemacscvs login
(Logging in to cvs(a)sunsite.dk)
CVS password: cvs
There is another similar spot,
, which also
Perhaps it's http://www.xemacs.org/Develop/cvsaccess.html#packages
where I should mention the necessity to cvs login as well?
Please tell me what I'm still missing.

in San Jose. Most of the code has no relevance to the outside
