CVS (Concurrent Versioning System) is a system that allows multiple developers to work on the same project without too many synchronization problems (at least in theory...). The XMeeting project files are hosted in a CVS repository on If you want to access the latest source, you will probably want to access the public CVS repository of the XMeeting project.

The following steps are required to download the latest files:

  1. Open
  2. Change to the directory where you want the folder containing the files to be located.
  3. Type in:
    cvs login
  4. If you are prompted for a password, simply press Enter.
  5. Type in:
    cvs checkout *modulename*
    where *modulename* corresponds to the module you want download. In case of XMeeting, *modulename* will be "XMeeting". In case of ohphoneX, *modulename* will be "ohphonex".
  6. Your working directory should now contain a new folder named after the module you checked out. This contains all source files for the module.
