Fedora Available via CVS
Last month I answered PHK's "Why Bother?" with FreeBSD Question. Reason 3 was "3. All FreeBSD source code is available via CVS. Rather than delete the latest issue of Red Hat Magazine, I should have paid attention to the Fedora Status Report. It notes that the The Fedora Project CVS Repository is now operational. You can now browse the Core or Extras CVS trees. This is a great development for the Fedora Core community, but it's not the same as what's available for, say, FreeBSD. The Fedora Core CVS gives greater access to the packages available in Fedora Core. I believe this is a result of the package-oriented installation process of Red Hat and Fedora distributions. Can anyone comment on this?
