BZFlag CVS, is the Concurrent Versions System used by the development team to maintain and store the BZFlag Source code. The CVS system is hosted by SourceForge and is accessible by anyone with the proper software.

CVS has 2 methods of access, Anonymous ( or anon CVS ) for general users, and a SSH based Developer CVS, for project developers.

CVS Modules

The source code in CVS is broken up into a number of modules for ease of use. When requesting the source code from the CVS system the module must be specified to the CVS software.

The current CVS modules are:


Anon CVS Access

SourceForge allows anonymous access to the CVS system on a read only basis. One does not need a SourceForge account to get a copy of the code via the Anon CVS system.

Users with a command line CVS tool can access the source by running 2 commands

 cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@bzflag.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/bzflag login 

and

  cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@bzflag.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/bzflag co -P bzflag

If a different module is desired, simply replace bzflag in the second command with the desired module.

Developer CVS Access
