 1. If you are going to offer anonymous CVS access via pserver, add a line in
    /etc/inetd.conf like
-
++
+--
+------
    cvspserver stream tcp nowait nobody git-cvsserver pserver
 
-   Note: In some cases, you need to pass the 'pserver' argument twice for
-   git-cvsserver to see it. So the line would look like

-   No special setup is needed for SSH access, other than having GIT tools
-   in the PATH. If you have clients that do not accept the CVS_SERVER
-   env variable, you can rename git-cvsserver to cvs.

 2. For each repo that you want accessible from CVS you need to edit config in
    the repo and add the following section.
-
++
+--
+------
    [gitcvs]
         enabled=1
         # optional for debugging
         logfile=/path/to/logfile
 
-   Note: you need to ensure each user that is going to invoke git-cvsserver has
-   write access to the log file and to the git repository. When offering anon
-   access via pserver, this means that the nobody user should have write access
-   to at least the sqlite database at the root of the repository.

 3. On the client machine you need to set the following variables.
    CVSROOT should be set as per normal, but the directory should point at the
    appropriate git repo. For example:
++
+--
+For SSH access, CVS_SERVER should be set to git-cvsserver
 
-   For SSH access, CVS_SERVER should be set to git-cvsserver
-
-   Example:
+Example:
 
+------
      export CVSROOT=:ext:user@server:/var/git/project.git
      export CVS_SERVER=git-cvsserver
-
+------
+--
 4. For SSH clients that will make commits, make sure their .bashrc file
    sets the GIT_AUTHOR and GIT_COMMITTER variables.
 
 5. Clients should now be able to check out the project. Use the CVS 'module'
    name to indicate what GIT 'head' you want to check out. Example:
-
++
+------
      cvs co -d project-master master
+------
