I don't think that there is any way to actually have two CVS servers
that are synchronized such that it is possible to use both fully
(checkout and commit on both). This is because of the way CVS is
designed to handle the files and revisions. They simply cannot be kept
in synk if there is write activity on both servers...

The best that can be done is to mirror a CVS master to a slave that
does not accept commits. This is possible by just copying the
repository files from the master server to the slave on regular
