Just send a mail to root with the public ssh key. Setting up ssh 
shouldn't take more than 10 minutes after the key is set. I would 
be happy to help - send me a private email if you run into any
If you are on windows - install cygwin and you'll get both ssh 
and cvs, it's the easiest way around.

All you need is to install ssh, generate a key pair and send the public
key to root ( he'll know how to put it in authorized_keys ).

Well - one reason for that is that committers who have expertise in JSP and
could apply the patches don't find the time to set up their CVS :-)
Yes, it is quite annoying.

I am going to ignore them for now - but I would be happy to help you 
get the CVS setup. Just send me a mail with your environment ( win, unix,
etc), I'm pretty familiar with ssh and cvs.
