CVS is the Content Versioning System, a client-server set of tools for maintaining text (in this case, the source code for GNU Enterprise) and keeping track of all the changes.

The GNU Enterprise CVS is publicly accesible on savannah, so anyone can view and download the source code. Savannah is a website which is use to house development resources for many GNU and other free software projects.

There are several ways to access CVS:

Web Access

You can browse the cvs tree online.

Normal CVS command line tools

To access cvs.....

  • First time only: Create a directory in which you wish to store the repository
  • Change to the directory you created above
  • Issue the following commands
  $ cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@subversions.gnu.org:/cvsroot/gnue login
    (Logging in to anoncvs@subversions.gnu.org)
    CVS password: **Password is left blank

  $ cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@subversions.gnu.org:/cvsroot/gnue co gnue-common
  $ cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@subversions.gnu.org:/cvsroot/gnue co gnue-appserver
  $ cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@subversions.gnu.org:/cvsroot/gnue co gnue-forms
  $ cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@subversions.gnu.org:/cvsroot/gnue co gnue-reports
  $ cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@subversions.gnu.org:/cvsroot/gnue co gnue-designer
  $ cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@subversions.gnu.org:/cvsroot/gnue co gnue-navigator
  $ cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@subversions.gnu.org:/cvsroot/gnue co gnue-integrator

  • You now have a local copy of the various repositories.

**NOTE: There is NO password for anoncvs. The user is anoncvs and the password is empty/null. Simply hit enter.

CVS Snapshots

There are nightly and hourly snapshots of CVS available for download from the GNU Enterprise website. These are primarily useful for developers who wish to test the current CVS base but cannot use the cvs tools (e.g., people behind a firewall).


Bonsai is a query interface to the CVS sourcerepository.


This is a cross referenced display of the GNU Enterprise source code. This is updated from CVS several times a day, so should be fairly up to date. It's possible to search through the entire GNU Enterprise source text; or to search for files whose name matches a pattern; or to search for the definitions of particular functions, variables, etc.
