[aur-general] How to make CVS work again

Hey guys,

During the server changes today, the path to the community CVS tree
changed. In order to make your existing checkouts work again, please
run the following at the root of your CVS checkout:

find . -path '*CVS/Root' -exec sed -i 's#/home/cvs-community#/srv/cvs/cvs-community#g' {} ';'

CVS will ask you to re-login if you had your credentials saved, due to
the change in path. In addition, CVS may not be available until tomorrow
morning due to permissions issues with the CVS lock directory, as soon
as someone with sudo wakes up, this should be fixed.


PS: There is a whole slew of documentation about the AUR that now needs
updating for the new path, anyone that wants to tackle this gets a
hundred gold stars and a bunch of thank-you's.
