No. A remote exploitable security hole has been discovered in the cvs
server code so I had to shutdown the server temporarily. The service is
back since the whole hole has been plugged.
As for firewalls I'd like to mention that linux-mips.org is running with
ECN enabled. That means sites still running broken firewalls such as
certain versions of the Cisco PIX may experience problems when using
certain linux-mips.org services such as active mode ftp and email. Time
to upgrade the firewall, fixed versions are out since long and ECN has
become the law ...
