anonymous cvs access to reactos project

would it be possible to allow anonymous access to reactos and related utilities cvs? wine, ecos, linux etc provide for anonymous cvs read access. in cursory browsing through the site, i didn't find information on that.

i might not be building it often, or using it even for long, but would love to steal time to understand how things are progressing.

doing a cvs update even after 5-6 months gap, will be cheaper and faster than downloading 19-20MB sourceballls. last i had downloaded 0.2.1 sourceball in april 2004, but didn't get time to go through it.

this has some CVS directories in sub-directories, but no CVS folder in top directory of extracted tree. also the Root content is like ":pserver:nj@24.234.141.99:/CVS/ReactOS" so it can't be used for cvs updates.

It is allowed. Use "cvs -d :pserver:cvsanon@cvs.reactos.com:/CVS/ReactOS login" with "cvsanon" as password. Then you can checkout the source with "cvs -d :pserver:cvsanon@cvs.reactos.com:/CVS/ReactOS co reactos"
More info here (just use cvs.reactos.com instead of osexperts.com as host name).
