-=head1 cvsup
+=head1 Getting SVN snapshots
 
-C<cvsup> has come out of the FreeBSD group. It's a client/server beast
-that offers an efficient way to sync collections of files over the
-net, and it is very CVS aware, allowing synchronisation of
-repositories or checked out files using the cvs deltas to bring the
-client side files up to date with minimal data transfer.

-For a FreeBSD cvsup client see
-http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/ports.cgi?query=cvsup&stype=all

-In case you can't get anonymous CVS access to work (or don't want to),
-there is another possibility: at http://cvs.apache.org/snapshots/ ,
-there are snapshots of the interesting CVS repositories you might
-want to download. These snapshots are extracted from CVS every 6
-hours, so might not contain the I<latest> changes, but you'll get
-pretty close. The file names contain the date and time, which you can
-also see in the directory listing. So just grab the latest one by
-date, which will get you the latest version.

-=head1 CVS+SSH access for mod_perl committers
+=head1 SVN access for mod_perl committers
 
-mod_perl committers need to use CVS over SSH. Normal SSH
-authentications mechanisms apply; you can use public key, password,
-etc. Refer to your ssh client's manpage.
+mod_perl committers need to first login to svn.apache.org and run
+svnpasswd command. Then the first time you want to commit you will be
+asked for a password, which is then will be stored in
+~/.subversion. Since all the commits require https:// checkouts, no
+password can be sniffed during the commit when it's sent to the server
+via an encrypted channel.
 
-=head2 Getting the Client
-
-If you don't have SSH already installed, you can get it from
-I<http://www.openssh.org/>. If your platform is not supported, this
-site provides pointers to other implementations. For example for
-Windows, you might want to look at C<Putty>,
-http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/, especially the
-C<plink> client which runs from the command line. Also see
-C<http://www.ssh.com/>.
-
-=head2 Setting Up the Environment
-
-Set your C<CVS_RSH> environment variable to C<ssh> (if your SSH
-program has a different name, such as I<plink>, use that instead). For
-example if you are using Bourne-style shell:
-
-  % export CVS_RSH=ssh
-
-You should add this your I<.bashrc> or similar file, so that it's set
-on startup. For Windows, add the line
-
-  set CVS_RSH=ssh
-
-to I<autoexec.bat>, or set the environment variable through the System
-section of the I<Control Panel> on NT systems.
-
-The CVS Root is different when using SSH. It's:
 
-  username@cvs.apache.org:/home/cvs
-
-where I<username> is your username on the I<cvs.apache.org> machine.

 The C<-d> option builds directories (if any were added since last
 update), like checkout does. The C<-P> option prunes empty directories
 if any. You can put these and other handy options into the rc
