I would like to gather some input on how many people have problems getting
to the libwww CVS repository because of firewalls. We have no firewall on
dev.w3.org but others who would like to contact it may.

What are your experiences on firewalls and libwww - can CVS be compiled
with SOCKS support? Is there any other ways of getting through firewalls?
We are experimenting with SSH tunnels using dummy shells but are not quite
there yet.

If this is a serious problem then one thing to do may be to wrap up the
repository as a tar ball on a regular basis but I would rather avoid that
if possible.
