The "fastest" may change depending on mirror loads or net conditions so I use this in my script that cvsups things: # Find fastest cvsup server at the moment host=`fastest_cvsup -Q -c us` /usr/local/bin/cvsup -g -L 2 -h $host /your/path/to/supfile See the manpage for fastest_cvsup for options available of course. The above is for US cvsup mirrors. Adjust accordingly.
