Did you get the CVS working for you already? Perhaps you or one of the  
other can help me out here.
Using Apple's document here:  
I managed to checkout the framework and import it in XCode. Everything  
works fine (checked out ok using my username and password) but now  
XCode keeps asking me for authentication which fails every time. It  
seems this is a "known" issue if I believe this snippet from the  
following link: http://maczealots.com/tutorials/xcode-cvs/

You are also going to need to set SSH up so that it won't need to enter  
a password when accessing your repository's machine. XCode has some  
sort of issues when it comes to entering an authorization password that  
I could not get past. On your laptop enter the following commands
ssh-keygen -t dsa

Hit enter to accept the default values for each prompt. Next, you will  
need to copy the contents of the id_dsa.pub file so you can paste it  
into the authorized_keys file on the repository machine. On the client  
cat ~/.ssh/id_dsa.pub
  (Copy the output)
  ssh justin at Gavin.local
  vi ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
  (Paste previous output and save the file)

If you can now ssh to the repository machine without entering a  
password, you should have no trouble with XCode asking for a password.


I don't believe I have access to that file, but perhaps someone else  
has the answer to this question.... (I did activate ssh connections in

Windows is a 32-bit patch to a 16-bit shell for an 8-bit
operating system, written for a 4-bit processor by a 2-
bit company without 1 bit of sense.
