I don't suppose you'd be willing to fill us in on the truth, then?
From where I stand, I see that there's problems, but most of us
don't know what is the cause of them, or how we can best avoid making
things hard on the project's machines.

Myself, I've used the main anoncvs primarily because I'm *really* close
to it on the network;  I've gotten great performance out of it (at
least up until this week), but now that there's apparently something going
on, I've had some troubles with the mirrors I've tried.

Any "official" enlightenment would be most welcome - I'm keenly aware
that this is a volunteer project, and I'm in no way trying to do anything
but figure out how I can avoid making things worse while still getting
the CVS updates I need.
