Subject Re: [OT] WinCVS problem (free beer!)
Date Wed, 05 Jan 2005 22:57:09 GMT
Well, TortoiseCVS has gotten me in to my SourceForge repository, so I'm 
going to go with that... I couldn't get jCVS to connect, but I suspect 
it's just my lack of knowledge of CVS in general.  I do think 
TortoiseCVS will do the trick nicely, and being the only one I got 
working doesn't hurt :)  Thanks for all the suggestions, now I just have 
to go learn what I'm doing with CVS in general :)
