Sounds a lot like ATM to me. I have until this day had no problems
with using cvsync and grappa.unix-ag.uni-kl.de. Since I am situated
in Denmark this is a really good bargain. I dropped using CVS
for pulling my sources and it has been an easy ride. I would seriously
consider building a 2-tier network where the main cvs server was
exclusively accessed by mirrors and comitters. Which would break the
circular dependency. On the other hand, it is not as open a solution as
the current one.
Another point is that I pull the whole thing to one server and let
that distribute to my other servers. It is much easier that way.
Why I refrain from talking about John Polstras cvsup is that it is
modula3 and is hard to get to work on quite many of the architectures
