It doesn't pertain to Geronimo per se, but I'm wondering why every docs 
about cvs (at least at Apache site) doesn't mention that the password 
may be specified on the command line ? Whouldn't it be simpler as the 
following cvs login command doesn't ask for the password, thus one 
doesn't need to type in the password over and over again ?

cvs -d login

Unless I'm mistaken, performing the following command is quite enough to 
check out the sources (no need to cvs login):

cvs -d -q 
checkout incubator-geronimo
