indeed, I'm running it on 1.12.9/linux which almost supports it when I
added the flag:

Error: Unexpected output from cvs co: cvs: WARNING: Read-only repository access mode selected via `cvs -R'. Using this option to access a repository which some users write to may cause intermittent sandbox corruption. cvs [checkout aborted]: Absolute module reference invalid: `/galis-org/docs/scripts/sync2live.sh'

fortunatly I don't need to checkout via the web as I migrate to bsd...
