Access rights to rdiff-backup Savannah web site project

ewl+rdiffbackup
Hi,

has someone experience with Savannah and CVS?

I'm admin but I still don't manage to modify the website...

$ CVS_RSH=ssh cvs -z3
-d:ext:[hidden email]:/web/rdiff-backup co -d
rdiff-backup-web rdiff-backup
$ vim index.html
$ cvs commit -m 'Changed index.html to refer to new site and github.'
index.html
/web/rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup/index.html,v  <--  index.html
new revision: 1.74; previous revision: 1.73
cvs [commit aborted]: could not open lock file
`/web/rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup/,index.html,': Permission denied

Thanks, Eric

PS: CVS, RSH, welcome back to the 90's...

completely stuck...

Thanks, Eric

That file, `/web/rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup/,index.html,` is remote,
right? In other words, there's no
`/web/rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup/,index.html,` anywhere on your local
disk right?

(Excuse me for maybe asking the obvious, but it's not clear from the above)

Nope, you're right, it's something on the server side.

Nothing is clear from the above, that's the issue ;-)

When I search that error message on the web, plenty of those instances
come up and it seems as a rule to be a server side filesystem
permissions problem. So I think the right people to contact are the
savannah sysadmins.

What you in a way did by opening an issue [1]. However you might want to
re-ping the sysadmins [2]. (I can only guess that being a non-profit
syadmin is the same as my sysadmin experience, but only more of the
same: the open tickets count is only ever increasing, a *friendly* nudge
is sometimes required :-/ )

Thanks for the confirmation that the issue is on the server side, I'm now on the mailing list https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/savannah-hackers/2019-12/msg00000.html
