Well, this is the first time I've actively participated in a
collaborative project outside of work.  Before I would only
submit patches or files to a maintainer (Bram) or upload releases
directly to CPAN...

Ironically, my department at my dayjob, which had been using PVCS
up until recently, has decided to switch to CVS.  So this has
given me the time and excuse to devote enough time to learn CVS.

No luck.  This is with both password and public key
authentication, both successful.  Regardless of local path,
server maintains I need write access.  Changing CVSROOT
predictably tells me it can't find the CVSROOT directory. :)

I will experiment some more this evening.  If I don't have any
success, I'll drop Tom a line.

Thanks all!

A: Two. One to write the HOWTO-LIGHTBULB-CRONJOB, and another to read it.
