Checking out Maven from CVS

excerpt from:

Maven specific instructions are here:

cvs -d login


cvs -d checkout jakarta-site2

Substitute the jakarta project name for 'jakarta-site2' to checkout other projects. This'll get the current daily version.. I haven't looked into version checkouts yet, but those are typically available on the site as zips.

running the checkout (co) cvs commans will checkout the current (HEAD) version to ./'module-name'

So be sure you're in the correct directory when checking out.


cvs -z3 -d co maven
