[] Follow-up: Major pserver CVS change soon

As a follow-up to my previous email:

- The CVS shadow copy will be updated as frequently as possible.  In fact, I will likely use the CVS loginfo service to immediately initiate a sync for those portions that have changed.
    - This means pserver may still be suitable for builds.  But...

- If you're using pserver for builds, you may want to switch to SSH to avoid possible sync issues
    - You can use SSH keys for passwordless authentication.  The procedure is explained below.
    - Since dev, download and all share the same home directory, your key will be used for all three locations.

Setting up a key:
On your client workstation:
mkdir ~/.ssh
chmod 700 ~/.ssh
cd .ssh
ssh-keygen -t rsa  and leave the passphrase blank
chmod 400 id_rsa 

dev$ mkdir ~/.ssh
dev$ chmod 700 ~/.ssh
dev$ cat ~/ >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
dev$ chmod 600 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
dev$ rm ~/
