I've responded to your email three times already, on three separate 
lists.  I realize that you're annoyed that anoncvs is broken, but it
is most decidedly *not* the case that nagging us will get it fixed
sooner.  Please try to keep that in mind.

Unfortunately, the reason anoncvs is broken right now is that the
maintainers of rsync broke rsync while fixing a security hole.  They
broke it at least two different ways that I've discovered so far, and
as yet neither they nor we have fixed it.  Unfortunately, we obviously
cannot back rsync down to a version with known security problems.

Until the underlying rsync issue gets dealt with, anoncvs is going to
be somewhat flaky.  I apologize, but there isn't much we can do.
