Subject Re: anonymous CVS?
Date Sat, 08 May 1999 21:02:01 GMT

Anon CVS is a pain to setup.  When it broke down
the person who was maintaining it was too busy to
get it up and running again.  Then people sang the
praises of rsync, and Brian set it up as "yet another 
way to get at stuff."

Rsync is a great tool to have in your bag of tricks
for building distributed systems.

It sure is fast.
