<p>
Access to the CVS repository of LON-CAPA is available by
  <ul>
    <li>
      <a href="http://source.lon-capa.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/">web</a>
    </li>
    <li>
      CVS command line tools -- submit a help request to the <a href="http://help.lon-capa.org/help/">MSU LON-CAPA group</a> to request a CVS USERNAME.
      <p> The initial CVS commands would be: </p>
      <blockquote>
        <table bgcolor="#aaaaaa" border="1">
          <tr>
            <td>
              <pre>
export CVS_RSH=ssh
export CVSROOT=:ext:USERNAME@source.lon-capa.org:/home/cvs 
cvs co loncapa
              </pre>
            </td>
          </tr>
        </table>
      </blockquote>
      <p>
        You will be prompted to enter your password each time you issue a cvs command. <br />
        A solution to this is to use
        <pre>
        ssh-keygen -b 2048 -t rsa
        </pre>
        to generate public and private keys in ~/.ssh/
        <br />
        Send the public key (id_dsa.pub) to helpdesk@lon-capa.org so it can be added to the appropriate authorized_keys file on source.lon-capa.org
      </p>
