[clug] exposing a CVS repository to the internet

Hi all,

I was wondering, what is the 'accepted' way of exposing a CVS repository 
to the internet (for read-only access). My CVS repository is stored on a 
fileserver on my local segment (, and my website is 
hosted on a DMZ separated by a firewall. This firewall permits no 
connects from the DMZ to the local network.

For me, the most convenient way is to allow the web server to mount a 
NFS on the fileserver through the firewall, but I am concerned that this 
will be too dangerous if somebody manages to compromise the web server.

Thanks in advance for your time,
