Angry Extras CVS anonymous download ?

Have done a CVS checkout of ngspice from
CVSROOT=server:anonymous@cvs.fedora.redhat.com:/cvs/extras

However this doesn't include source code as far as I can see (can't find it).
It does include a script apparently for downloading the source code.
cvs-import.sh

When this script is run, it replies
ERROR: You need to download your Fedora client-side certificate
from https://admin.fedora.redhat.com/accounts/

This requires registration as far as I can tell which says that anonymous download can't be done.

Help ?

Notice that the script is cvs-import.sh. That imports srpms into the repository.

What do you want out of the repository? Not the spec it would seem, that's in a checkout. You probably want the sources listed as Source0, etc. Easiest would be to grab and install the srpm from the development branch of your local mirror.

For CVS import you obviously need write access to the particular package which then would require registration, authentication etc. A normal checkout only pulls out the spec files. What you can do to get the source code for a particular package, is to go to one of the directories for currently maintained branches - devel, FC5 or FC6 and run make in it which through some commonly shared magic would download the source code. We dont actually store source code directory for the upstream projects since that would be very much redundant but instead pull it during build time.
