* For what it's worth, I have a shell script suite which takes, as input,
* the output of the nightly CVS run, and generates a list of files to
* retrieve via anonymous FTP.
* That is a *very* bad idea. Do *not* do it. Should the CVS update
* happen to be aborted for any reason, you will miss some of the files
* that have been updated.
Do you mean if the CVS update is not posted that I will miss some of the
files? If yes, then ok, I agree I will miss some of the files. However
as I cannot convince our Network Operations group, their bosses or the
grand wazoo of the company that "sup" is a worthwhile service to allow
through the firewall, anon ftp is my only choice -- and, I suspect,
If the transfer fails (I check the transfer by seeing what's there and
diffing it against what is *supposed* to be there), I just restart it.
No big deal. In this case I don't understand from whence you draw
