Hi Algorith,

I suspect that there are some reliability problems with the CVS server on Since November, we have tried to download the most recent changes on eight separate occasions, and all of them failed because of server timeouts or disconnections.

I just took another look at it, and it seems that the server is up and working well. I rescheduled the download job again, but it's telling me that there are 7900 patch sets to download. Given our history with this server, I have my doubts that we'll get through all 7900 patch sets without a problem. I'll keep my eye on it, and will keep retrying if there are more failures.

BTW please don't delete and re-add the same enlistment to a project. Our system detects the duplicate and re-uses the existing broken download, and it only makes debugging more confusing.
