David, something really odd is going on with check-ins to Smaug-web.
Can you help?
First, I tried going to my standard checkout directory of
/var/www/smaug/htdocs and doing "cvs update". I got authentication
errors: It seemed as if the SSH keys on the SourceForge server end had
changed. (I removed the cached keys from my ~/.ssh directory, and tried
again.) Then, I got some other bizarre errors, which unfortunately I
didn't make a record of.
Rather than try to debug everything, I moved my /var/www/smaug/htdocs
directory (containing my old checkout) out of the way, created a fresh
/var/www/smaug/ stub, and did an absolutely fresh checkout, like:
$ export CVS_RSH=/usr/bin/ssh
$ cvs -z3 -d:ext:rickmoen at cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/smaug-web co htdocs
...which finally got me a checkout. I made edits to *.sub, newsleft.html,
and dir.html, and created new file map-smaug-tinys.jpeg . Did:
$ cvs add map-smaug-tinys.jpeg
$ cvs ci *.sub newsleft.html
$ cvs commit
Later, I verified that my checkins had actually made it into the CVS
repository by doing a fresh check-out. They're definitely in the

ANYHOW, the script /home/groups/s/sm/smaug-web/web_update on
shells.sourceforge.net doesn't seem to be doing anything useful,
anymore. (I don't think I can run it fruitfully with my user
authority.) Do you have time to look into it?
I'm sorry I don't have time to chase it down, but I'm a bit swamped.
My fallback option would be to modify the htdocs directory in
/home/groups/s/sm/smaug-web/ directly, which obviously should be avoided
if necessary. (If you notice that the mtime on web_update has changed,
it's because I tried editing hostname "cvs1" in the script to "cvs".
That didn't seem to help, so I backed out the change.)
