Don't despair... The pserver vs. ssh access problems are about to go away:

CVS Service: staff are presently in the process of
performing a two-phase hardware upgrade to address performance issues
with the project CVS service. The first phase of this upgrade is
expected to occur on or around 2005-03-07. The second phase will occur
roughly two weeks later, and will be followed by the long-awaited
removal of the sync delay between developer CVS, and the anonymous
pserver-based CVS and ViewCVS services (currently five hours). Minimal
downtime is expected for the hardware upgrade cutovers. Downtime will be
announced on the Site Status page once the transition to remove the sync
delay has been scheduled. (Last updated: 2005-03-02 Pacific)
