I don't think you can discover that information in the general case,
just like you can't discover what directory a web server is serving its
files from.

However, in FreeBSD's case, the configuration files for cvsupd, as it is
run on FreeBSD servers, is available via cvsup, according to:


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.
