Subject Re: Question to cvs task
Date Fri, 28 Dec 2007 16:53:51 GMT
Are you on Windows? On cvsnt, the password is stored inside the
Registry. The cvs task can't get to it. I've put the password into the
CVSROOT. Since we don't check anything back into CVS from Ant, it's
really just a read-only CVSROOT.

Take a look at the <cvs> task in the Ant manual, and you'll see the following:

CVSNT Note: CVSNT prefers users to store the passwords inside the
registry. If the cvspass task and the passfile attribute don't seem to
work for you, the most likely reason is that CVSNT ignores your
.cvspass file completely. See bug zilla report 21657 for recommended
workarounds.

Bugzilla report can be found at
http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=21657#c5

If you're on Unix, the .cvspass file is stored under your $HOME directory.
