Developer CVS Repository Access: Creating your home directory
Before a developer may access their CVS repository, they must first connect once, via an interactive SSH session, to the project CVS servers as to have their home directory created. Home directories are not shared between the project shell and project CVS servers; it is necessary to connect to the CVS server directly before using CVS services as a developer.
Upon connecting to cvs.sourceforge.net interactively using your SSH client, your home directory will be created, and you will be logged-out of that host automatically. The only reason to connect to the project CVS servers interactively is to have your home directory created; direct access to the project CVS repositories (i.e. filesystem level access via a shell) is not provided.
Failure to create your home directory before accessing CVS services will result in an error message similar to the following:
Could not chdir to home directory /home/users/u/us/username: No such file or directory /usr/bin/X11/xauth: error in locking authority file /home/users/u/us/username/.XauthorityShould you encounter this error message, you may remedy this issue simply by logging in to cvs.sourceforge.net interactively via SSH, as described previously.
