As per the instructions on

Anonymous CVS is available from: 

cvs -d:pserver:anoncvs pdx freedesktop org:/cvs login


cvs -d:pserver:anoncvs pdx freedesktop org:/cvs co 

You can browse the modules via web at

CVS commits can be monitored on a per-project basis. See the project's
page for more info.

See UsingCvs for help with developer CVS access.

If you have some code that may be of cross-desktop interest, we're happy
to host it on our CVS server, and you may want to bring it up for
discussion on xdg-list. Mail the fd.o admins with requests for CVS
access; be sure to include a pointer to the work you want to put in CVS.

this works

cvs -d ':pserver:anoncvs pdx freedesktop org:/cvs/ cvs -d desktop-file-
utils menus/desktop-file-utils  

this doesn't (as per instructions)
cvs -d ':pserver:anoncvs pdx freedesktop org:/cvs/ desktop-file-utils
