The output when accessing CVS looked like (this is still on the NPL Illinois server, so the home directory of CVS was /site/npl/mucap/cvsroot/ instead of the new one /home/cvs/mucap/cvsroot/:

cvs checkout: warning: cannot write to history file /site/npl/mucap/cvsroot/CVSROOT/history: Permission denied
cvs checkout: Updating mu
cvs checkout: failed to create lock directory for `/site/npl/mucap/cvsroot/mu' (/site/npl/mucap/cvsroot/mu/#cvs.lock): Permission denied
cvs checkout: failed to obtain dir lock in repository `/site/npl/mucap/cvsroot/mu'
cvs [checkout aborted]: read lock failed - giving up

If that occurs when you first try to access CVS, please send an email to David Webber and ask him to give you CVS access permissions. Soon after that you should be able to download repositories.
