This raises a question I've had for some time, and though perhaps now
isn't the ideal time to ask, I'll risk it anyway....   :-)

I would like to see all the contents of NetBSD's $CSVROOT/CVSROOT be
published (except of course any cvspserver passwd file, and perhaps not
the history file either, if indeed one is being kept), along with any
external scripts such as those mentioned above.  (At the moment only the
modules file is available.)

I am assuming that nothing in there would be proprietary, an assumption
that may in fact not be safe to make, so please explain if that's the

I've found the availability of these things in the FreeBSD repository to
