It isn't something that NetBSD is currently offering, though we have 
discussed it.  There are some legal issues we need to resolve before this 
will be possible.

It's worth noting that, while I did "oppose" it in the past (though 
"oppose" is a little strong), I personally think that it would be a 
useful and good thing to offer the NetBSD user community.

However, as I partially addressed above, there are some issues that need 
to be thought out/resolved (not all of them are legal issue ... logistics 
plays a big part in a well-run anonymous CVS or CVS-like service, and 
resources is another issue altogether).
