Yes, I can see the problems.

The main benefits having access to a read-only CVS is (my point of view):

- The ability to easy trace changes in files.
- The ability to easy restore old revisions of specific files.
- Have access to the most recent files (alpha/beta/not tested type of
things) before Jeremy takes his time to make a release.

But, hey - it was just a spontanous suggestion! Don't get indignant! - I'm
really happy working with MUSCLE and seems it is terrific that it is public
availiable in the first place! Jeremy is doing a GREAT JOB!

Hi David,

LCS maintains the muscle source on our private CVS server, along with a l=
ot of=20
other closed-source LCS code.  I could ask my sysadmin about allowing=20
anonymous read-only access to the muscle repository if you like, but I'm =
sure if it's possible to allow that for just one repository (and I am sur=
they wouldn't want to allow anonymous access to the rest of our sources! =
:^)).  I'm also not clear as to what the advantages of read-only CVS acce=
would be over just downloading and unzipping the latest released muscle.z=
file.  Perhaps you can describe what benefits you see in having CVS acces=
