However, in FreeBSD's case, the configuration files for cvsupd, as it is run on FreeBSD servers, is available via cvsup, according to: http://www.cvsup.org/faq.html#serversample You might be able to grab the FreeBSD project's config files for cvsupd using that, and extract from those files the information you're interested in. -Chris _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
