The problem wasn't bandwidth.  The problem was dozens of cvs sessions
on the server that were sending the system load through the roof.

But, it's still good net ettiquette (and free software programming
ettiquette) to lurk for awhile before contributing.

Anyways, is it really a good idea to open up commit access to the full
Gnome source tree to somebody who might not know what they are doing,
and are just contributing code on the side so they can get access?

I just commented because I feel anonymous access to the CVS is fairly
important, and should be restored somehow.

Suggestion: why don't we piggyback on the mirroring cvs network that is setting up?
