I'm just resurfacing after being on travel on and off for a month -- perhaps 
someone else has answered already, but perhaps not :-).  cvsupd does not have 
native IPv6 support -- there are patches, but a bug in m3 prevents them from 
working properly.  The usualy workaround is to do something like netcat from 
the IPv6 port bound by inetd to cvsupd, but I've not had time to set that up. 
There's no reason that we couldn't, and in fact every reason we should, it 
just hasn't happened yet.
