i think the subject says it all. i just wanted to submit a patch to one of the packages, but now i need to first dig out the right CVSROOT value.

there is a "Browse the source tree" button on the relevant package homepage that developers can configure for their package, please contact the relevant maintainer if there is no link.

I don't want to use the web interface, I want to *check out* the source. Like:

 cvs -qd:pserver:whoever@wherever:/path co

For that, I need to know the :pserver:whoever@wherever:/path part. How is Chora supposed to help me? I don't see what's bogus about this request. Again, I don't need a web page URL, I need the right value for the cvs -d switch.

Ah ok.
Well most packages are in and follow a clear naming standard in CVS. So its effectively a non issue.

It is however an issue for packages living outside of PEAR CVS. Few if them even provide a web cvs/svn links and I do agree that it would be important to provide the necessary information there (including anonymous username/password).

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PEAR itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PEAR, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PEAR.

There is a link to the webcvs, instructions to use anonymous cvs access are in the php manuel.

Packages outside php repository are special cases, it is then up to the maintainers to provide this information.

That said, I really like to force:
a) use a cvs
b) use php cvs

for any pkg in
