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.
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:
- bzflag : The main module that includes the game client, server, plug-ins, and bzadmin.
- admin : The master ban list
- bzedit : The linux version of the BZFlagmap editor BZEdit
- bzeditw32 : The windows version of the BZFlagmap editor BZEditWin32
- web : The main website at http://www.bzflag.org
- db : Files related to the website http://my.bzflag.org and the Global Login system.
- tools : an abandoned cross platform version of BZEditWin32
- pybzflag : an abandoned python implementation of BZFlag
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:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/bzflag login
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/bzflag co -P bzflag
If a different module is desired, simply replace bzflag in the second command with the desired module.
