There are a variety of patches to CVS to allow for HTTP proxy use. The
CVS client that comes with WinCVS [also available as gCVS for unix and
MacCVS for Macintosh] comes with one of the http proxy patches included.
A small note for anyone trying to compile gCVS on Fedora - I had to make
a few patches.... I have an RPM and SRPM files if anyone is interested
in hosting. By default, it puts the binaries in /usr/local/bin.
You can get WinCVS, gCVS and MacCVS from http://cvsgui.sourceforge.net/
