New issue 798 by onkarshinde: CVS repository configured as per the
documentation does not work
*NOTE: Do not post confidential information in this bug report.*
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. As per the documentation provided at
I configured the CVS repository.
The path is of the form - :pserver:usern...@192.168.48.33:/usr/local/cvs
I have also specified the username and password. But I got some
authentication error while trying to view the diff of a review request.
2. Then I removed the username from the path while keeping
username/password configuration. Still I got authentication error.
3. In the end I specified the path in form
:pserver:username:passw...@192.168.48.33:/usr/local/cvs. And that worked.
It looks like the username and password specified in the configuration were
being ignored in both 1st and 2nd scenario.
I believe that problem is somewhere in scmtools/cvs.py, but I am not able
to figure out where exactly.
Also the documentation might need and update.
