An good old access permission problem on the web server but I won't have
time to sort it out now.

Until then you can use gitcvs to access the repositories:

  cvs -d co -d 
linux-malta -P <branch>

Where <branch> is one of linux-2.0, linux-2.2, linux-2.4, MaltaRef_2_4,
MaltaRef_2_6 and master - if your firewall allows port 2401 that is ...

But why are you still using the linux-malta repository?  Since ~ 5 months
it is no longer being updated and has effectivly been replaced with
linux.git repository.  Of this repository there are also snapshots of all
tagged versions available.
