CVS server hanging up?

Is it just me, or is the CVS server hanging up for anybody else? For me, it's getting to:

cvs server: Updating ljcom/src/mod_latency

And then halting for all eternity.

It's doing this on both my Linux and Win2K systems—stopping in the exact same place—and it's been doing it for about a day.

I'm running the command:

cvs -z3 checkout livejournal ljcom

Any ideas?


PATCHES: Revised patches for preformatted bio option


Revised patches for a preformatted option for user bios.

Reference: lj_dev:404019


These patches provide a "Don't Auto-Format"/"Preformatted" option for user bios.

Upon recommendation of bradfitz, the "preformatted" option is now stored in column has_bio of table user, rather than in a new column opt_preformatted on table userbio.

has_bio is now set to "P" if the user has a bio, and it is preformatted, "Y" if the user has a bio, and it is not preformatted, and "N" if the user has no bio. userinfo.bml and editinfo.bml now check to see if $u->{'has_bio'} ne "N", rather than $u->{'has_bio'} eq "Y". This should not affect anything, as "N" is already the default value for has_bio.

This does require, however, that column has_bio on table user be altered from an enum('Y','N') to a char(1).
