WinCVS Setup - SourgeForce in particular

WinCVS Setup - SourgeForce in particular

WinCVS Setup - SourgeForce in particular


Downloaded WinCVS, RapidSVN, and SubVersion and been trying to get them to work.

In particular I opened two OS projects on SourgeForce and have been trying to step by step, with their howto docs, but swear they wrote them in Swaheli or something, cause nothing they say to do works.

Docs I was given/found are at:


I did get down through the part about generating the SSH key, at least for one project, but they kept talking about PuttyGen, when it is not delivered with the Putty download, so you have to go out search the web, find and download PuttyGen then generate the key.  They need to say this in the HOWTO.

Anyway I somehow got SSH, from the windows command line, to open and got to the point of loggin in, but it would never take the login.  Based on that I opened a tracker ticket at:


I also added to an existing forum submit on CVS at:


And no one seems to know what to say/do to help with resolving the problem.

I even went to #cvs on IRC and got no help there.  Wondering who know about CVS enough to help me get past the roadblocks.

CVS help please!

RE: WinCVS Setup - SourgeForce in particular

Still no help here?

I'm desperate!



RE: WinCVS Setup - SourgeForce in particular

Gee/Duh! I can't type it's SourceForge not the other.


RE: WinCVS Setup - SourgeForce in particular


Got no help on my Python Q and see there is no help here either, since I'm the only contributor.
