Hi all,

we have installed a new and improved infrastructure for the OpenCms
development. This includes new servers for the OpenCms CVS and the
OpenCms bug tracking system (which is based on Bugzilla). We also have
created a full-text searchable index for the recently updated mailing
list server.

CVS client configuration

Set your environment variable CVSROOT or GUI client equivalent to

   :pserver:anon at cvs.opencms.org:/usr/local/cvs

Next, you need to login into the CVS repository by typing

   cvs login

or using the equivalent login method for your GUI client. This will ask
you for a password.

The password for anonymous read-only access is "anon".

The complete OpenCms source code is available in the opencms/
subdirectory of the CVS tree. To get the whole opencms tree and place it
in a subdir of your current working directory, issue the command

   cvs checkout opencms

or use the equivalent method of your GUI client.

We also provide a new CVS web interface at: 

The OpenCms bug tracking system

We also have installed a new bug tracker (based on Bugzilla) which now
also features the new version information for the 5.0 release.

Please use the OpenCms bug tracking system to report all bugs you find
in OpenCms. Using the bug tracking system makes it easier for everyone
using OpenCms and participating in the OpenCms development to manage the
process of bug fixing. You will have to create an account first.

Unfortunatly we where unable to move the 15 currently "open" or "new"
bugs to the new server. We might re-enter the most important bugs
manually later. If you have recently filed a serious bug report, please
re-file it in the new bugzilla.

The new OpenCms bug tracking system is still available at: 

Please note: If you encounter setup related problems, please consult the
OpenCms mailing list first. In 95% of all cases, setup issues are not
bugs in OpenCms but related to your local environment configuration. In
this case, you should first search the mailing list archive because most
of the setup problems have already been answered a couple of times. If
you don't find the answer to your setup problem in the archive, post it
to the OpenCms mailing list.
