Re: Unidentified subject!

     as a Gnome fan and a user of cvs but still very much a newbie can 
     someone tell me how to set  up my system to use a European cvs mirror 
     ? - there was a post a couple of days ago about one - think it was at 
     the Dutch sunsite mirror ?
     I have export CVSROOT in my /etc/profile set as in the instructions on 
     the gnome web site to - what would I have to change to get 
     it to default to a closer mirror ? ( if possible )
     I altered it to the url as posted for etc etc but it 
     didn't seem to help ?
     any help much appreciated

Are there any alternatives to CVS for people who merely want to keep their 
snapshots of Gnome development tree up-to-date? Would it be worth setting up
