The skynet CVS is currently /services/cvs on Orac
To create a new respository (admins only - root is needed) create the directory /services/cvs/<repname> and chown it to the user who will be using it.
To use the repository, set your CVSROOT. export CVSROOT=":ext:<username>@cvs.csn.ul.ie:/services/cvs/<repname>"
Before you put anything in the repository, you much initialise it: cvs init
To create a module: cvs import <module_name> <username> initial # do from within the directory you want to put in cvs
man cvs will show you the rest.
