Just a quick update from Thursday:
I found that http://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/sup/README.sup notes:
"Please note that the "anoncvs" collection has been removed. If you
want to mirror the NetBSD CVS repository you should use the rsync
service on anoncvs.NetBSD.org instead."
I guess that's where I went wrong:
- FreeBSD uses cvsup as the primary distribution method of mirroring
the AnoncCVS repository, including a collection to help
- NetBSD uses rsync or sup as the primary medium (although some notes
and documentation suggest a FreeBSD-like cvsup infrastructure) (*)
*: Documentation at: http://cvsup.uk.netbsd.org/NetBSD-sup
is 404 not found -- trying to contact the cvsup.uk.* maintainer
regarding the source of his cvsupd(8) server configuration files.
