This HOWTO provides info on the CVS repsitory used for the Linux VR project.
You can check out the latest source code through anonymous (pserver) CVS:
cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/linux-vr login cvs -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/linux-vr co linux
Just press Enter for the password (leave it blank). Updates from within the module’s directory do not need the -d parameter. Please contact a project admin to request write access to the repository.
This creates a “linux” directory right under wherever you were when you did the checkout command. I recommend that you rename it to “linux-vr”:
mv linux linux-vr
You can update your local sources from the Linux VR CVS repository:
cd linux-vr cvs update
You can also browse the repository.
- If someone has a patch, let them post it to the list. We will all review it, and if it receives approval, an appropriate person will commit it.
- Once someone proves to be trustworthy and competent, by means of posting of quality patch(es), and can demonstrate a reasonable need for CVS write access, that person may apply for CVS write access. Those currently with write access will as a group consider the application, if they reach a consensus to approve the application, they will grant the applicant permission for write access.
- If someone who has write access proves to be untrustworthy or incompetent, then the others with write access will as a group consider revoking their permission for write access, and will make a decision of whether or not to revoke based on consensus.
