1. If you are going to offer anonymous CVS access via pserver, add a line in
/etc/inetd.conf like

2. For each repo that you want accessible from CVS you need to edit config in
the repo and add the following section.
-
++
+--
+------
[gitcvs]
enabled=1
# optional for debugging
logfile=/path/to/logfile
- Note: you need to ensure each user that is going to invoke git-cvsserver has
- write access to the log file and to the git repository. When offering anon
- access via pserver, this means that the nobody user should have write access
- to at least the sqlite database at the root of the repository.

3. On the client machine you need to set the following variables.
CVSROOT should be set as per normal, but the directory should point at the
appropriate git repo. For example:
++
+--
+For SSH access, CVS_SERVER should be set to git-cvsserver
- For SSH access, CVS_SERVER should be set to git-cvsserver
-
- Example:
+Example:
+------
export CVSROOT=:ext:user@server:/var/git/project.git
export CVS_SERVER=git-cvsserver
-
+------
+--
4. For SSH clients that will make commits, make sure their .bashrc file
sets the GIT_AUTHOR and GIT_COMMITTER variables.
5. Clients should now be able to check out the project. Use the CVS 'module'
name to indicate what GIT 'head' you want to check out. Example:
-
++
+------
cvs co -d project-master master
+------
