a wide consensus has been reached towards replacing CVS with another more modern Version Control solution. If you do not already have a VCS please see BzrInstructions.
To checkout the current source tree from our CVS server:
% setenv CVSROOT ':pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/squid' % cvs login
When prompted for a password, enter 'anoncvs'.
% cvs checkout squid3
You can use cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/squid checkout squid3 for a shorter all-in-one method that wont set environment variables.
If you make automake related changes then you will need to bootstrap your tree -
This may give errors if you don't have the right distribution-time dependencies (libtool, automake > 1.5, autoconf > 2.61).
To update your source tree later, type:
% cvs update
cvs -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/squid login
- ..blank password, just press enter...
cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/squid co -rHEAD -d squid-HEAD squid3
Squid-3 STABLE branches are not mirrored in CVS.
Note: If you are looking for the main Squid sources please see BzrInstructions and use the Bazaar instead.
To view the CVS history online and browse the current sources use the CVSWeb interface.
Repository developer branches (obsolete)
The experimental code CVS repository and server is kindly hosted by SourceForge
The Squid Development projects CVS server and can be reached both anonymously using pserver and online on the web.
