Hi everyone,
unfortunately we are unable to change things at our end, but we now know
what the problem is. Anyone who is having problems using CVS to get the
greenstone source code and is getting messages such as:

2402/usr/local/global-cvs/gsdl-src: no such repository

should read http://www.greenstone.org/cgi-bin/library?a=p&p=cvs
for a fix.
