should be sent to emacs-pretest-bug@gnu.org rather than gnu.emacs.help
or gnu.emacs.bug. Ideally, use M-x report-emacs-bug RET which will
send it to the proper place.
Note on using SSH to access the CVS repository from inside emacs
----------------------------------------------------------------
Write access to the CVS repository requires using SSH v2.
If you execute cvs commands inside emacs, specifically if you use
pcl-cvs, output from CVS may be lost due to a problem in the
interface between ssh, cvs, and emacs. Corrupted checkins are
also been reported to have happened.
To fix the problem, save the following script into a file, make it
executable, and set CVS_RSH to the file name of the script:
#!/bin/bash
exec 2> >(exec cat >&2 2>/dev/null)
exec ssh "$@"
This may be combined with the following entry in ~/.ssh/config to
simplify accessing the CVS repository:
Host subversions.gnu.org
Protocol 2
ForwardX11 no
User YOUR_USERID
