Using vcsrepo with CVS

To create a blank repository

Define a vcsrepo without a source or revision:

vcsrepo { "/path/to/repo":
  ensure => present,
  provider => cvs
}

To checkout/update from a repository

To get the current mainline:

vcsrepo { "/path/to/workspace":
    ensure => present,
    provider => cvs,
    source => ":pserver:anonymous@example.com:/sources/myproj"
}

You can use the compression parameter (it works like CVS -z):

vcsrepo { "/path/to/workspace":
    ensure => present,
    provider => cvs,
    compression => 3,
    source => ":pserver:anonymous@example.com:/sources/myproj"
}

For a specific tag, use revision:

vcsrepo { "/path/to/workspace":
    ensure => present,
    provider => cvs,
    compression => 3,
    source => ":pserver:anonymous@example.com:/sources/myproj",
    revision => "SOMETAG"
}

For sources that use SSH

Manage your SSH keys with Puppet and use require in your vcsrepo to ensure they are present. For more information, see the require metaparameter documentation1.
