Normally I'd point you to the faq on oss.sgi.com but since that one is
down, here the respective part from the faq. It just won't help you
very much until oss is fixed which should be by Tuesday.
5.2. Anonymous CVS servers.
For those who always want to stay on the bleeding edge and want to
avoid having to download patch files or full tarballs we also have an
anonymous CVS server. Using CVS you can checkout the Linux/MIPS
source tree with the following commands:
cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs login
(Only needed the first time you use anonymous CVS, the password is "cvs")
cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/cvs co <repository>
where you insert linux, libc, gdb or faq for <repository>.
The other important CVS archive of the Linux community is
vger.rutgers.edu where a lot of code is being collected before being
sent to Linus for distribution. Although vger itself no longer offers
anonymous access, there are mirror sites which do provide anonymous
access. For details how to access them see
<http://cvs.on.openprojects.net/>. The modules which are of interest
are ``linux'', ``modutils'', ``pciutils'', ``netutils''.
