Hey Tommy and Patrick,
I followed what you said and success!! I have access to the cvs tree and can
see all. I am able to see the files such as ones in docs-common, but what
commands can i issue to be able to open them, to read through and cehck for
errors and edit (i did see you have to set a file as watched before
editing??) i can see the tree when i issue the command cvs -t co -c, but
what are the basic commands to open folders and open files to view and
Obviously at this point it would be good to know just what rules there are.
i have read the rules on the wiki, but id like to know what "In-house"
etiqute is performed. For example to start with if i am reading through and
notice a spelling / grammar error, a) how do i edit said file and b) whats
is the procedure, as in do i contact the owner directly or through mailing
And again thank you for help. The solution was as said. I needed to get
another ssh key and upload that, since i was still using a root one. this
has been corrected and i am now a non-super user account. it was habit to
log in to terminal and su, but i have stopped doing so.

Try running the cvs command using the "-t" switch to turn on tracing
of the communications. Unless you have already set your SSH passphrase
with the ssh-add program, the first thing you should see is the CVS server
asking for your passphrase; this is how my trace starts:
$ cvs -t co -c
-> main loop with CVSROOT=:ext:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs/docs
-> Starting server: /usr/bin/ssh -l jtr cvs.fedoraproject.org
For more information on using the Fedora source code repositories,
please visit http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/UsingCvs
Enter passphrase for key '/home/reynolds/.ssh/id_dsa':
