anonymous CVS access

I finally got anonymous CVS access running on SourceForge.

You can have access to the *development* version of swish-e.  DO NOT use
this version on a production server (but if you are crazy enough to do so,
please report back your findings... ;)

Here's how it works:

1) first log in:

> cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.SWISHE.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/swishe login

This will ask for a password.  The password is "guest".  You should receive
your system prompt back without it saying anything.  This will create a
.cvspass in your home directory so you don't have to login again.

2) checkout swish-e  (all one line, of course)

> cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.SWISHE.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/swishe
co swish-e

That will create a directory called "swish-e".

Now you have a current copy of the development version of swish-e to play
with.
You just type:

  cd swish-e
  ./configure
  make
  make test
  make install (if you are root and want to install to /usr/local/bin)

A week later when you want the most current version again simply type

  cd swish-e
  cvs update

If you want the HTML documentation (and you have the needed files on your
system) you type:

  cd doc
  make
  cd ..

If you want a swish searchable version of the docs type

  cd doc
  make split
  cd ..

And for pdf and postscript

  make pdf

Later,
