[MITgcm-support] behind-the-scenes CVS repository changes

Hi folks,

Due to disk upgrades, the location of the CVS repository has been
physically moved.  If you've been using the "standard" location listed
on the web site:


then you should have no problems since soft-links should correctly hide
the "behind the scenes" changes.

However, if (like me) you've used different CVSROOT specifications then
here are a set of bash commands to "change" the repository locations:

  a=`find . -name Root | grep 'CVS/Root'`
  for i in $a ; do 
    echo ':ext:mitgcm.org:/u/gcmpack' > $i 

and they're included as a script below.  Note that this method is also a
convenient way to switch a local copy of CVS content from "pserver" to
"ext" mode.  And please make backups before running any scripts that
might harm your hard work!
