I am taking a peek at Jigsaw (very nice!) and wanted to play with the
interface to CVS 
system.  I have never used CVS before, but I am working on that so bare
with me.  
I have used RCS on many projects and this seems like very compelling
development environment.  

I started with the tutorial and pieced together some more from this list.
After installing all the necessary components I began to configure Jigsaw.
Here is where I am.

1. For reference I 'setenv CVSROOT /opt/Jigsaw/Jigsaw/WWW'.

2. I issued 'cvs init' which seemed to create a CVS repository as 

3. The Jigsaw documentation at
 makes this reference -- "To access the directory templates database, point
favorite browser to /Admin/DirectoryTemplates." 

I believe there is a problem with the documentation and assumed it meant 
/Admin/Directories/.  There I added a directory template call CVS mapped to
w3c.jigsaw.cvs.CvsDirectoryResource class.

4. Add the following lines to httpd.conf and restarted the server:

5. Here's where it became a little foggy for me.  I went to the Resource
at /Admin/Editor/ and added a CVS (or is it CVSROOT) resource and mapped it
the  w3c.jigsaw.cvs.CvsDirectoryResource class.

6. When I accessed /CVS (or is it /CVSROOT) Jigsaw kicks off the wrapper
script which 
produces the output:

/opt/Jigsaw/Jigsaw/bin/cvs_wrapper -directory /opt/Jigsaw/Jigsaw/WWW
/usr/local/bin/cvs -q -d /afs/w3.org/pub/WWW status Overview.html 
w3c.cvs.CvsDirectory[/opt/Jigsaw/Jigsaw/afs/w3.org/pub/WWW /WWW]: Process
exited with error code: 1

I was a little surprised by the -d /afs/w3.org/pub/WWW in the output
produced by Jigsaw.  Did I miss something in the configuration?  I'd be
grateful for a 'lil guidance.
