Well dunno, I am not using anonymous CVS anymore...

They are, I posted a news item not so long ago on the site:
http://open-beos.sourceforge.net/files/OpenBeOS-src.tgz

I don't know about their CVS tarballs, but I would be surprised if they 
wouldn't work anymore.

We are sure looking into that, but SF provides very good services in 
general - not only because they are free.
CVS updates are really fast since they moved the anonymous CVS to 
another server, it's really nice to work with for a developer.
Their problems with anonymous CVS and also the WebCVS suck, though. But 
even if it takes another month, I am sure they'll work it out.

Adios...
