CVS Repository Account

 

To manage course projects (e.g., to retrieve the code we provide for a project) you will need a special account named the "CVS repository account".  You can find your CVS repository account (and associated password) by accessing grades.cs.umd.edu and selecting "Receive Class Account".  Usually your account has the login id cs131XXX where XXX is a number.

 

In addition to your CVS repository account, you need to know the host computer and the CVS repository base directory.  This semester the host computer will be:

 

linuxlab.cs.umd.edu

   

The Repository Path to use in Eclipse's "Add CVS Repository" dialog form will be:

 

/afs/csic/users/nelson/cmsc131Spring2011/cs131XXX

 

where cs131XXX is yourCVS repository account.  Don't use cs131XXX as is an invalid account.


Remember to use "extssh" for the "Connection Type" option.
