Right now as far as I know you need username "cvs", password "cvs"  -
or a full developer account.  I guess another read only account could
be setup (maybe "guest") with no password, assuming there are no
security issues with this, but the OBF guys would have to do this.
You could ask them on support at helpdesk.open-bio.org but given we
probably won't continue with CVS that much longer anyway, it seems a
bit pointless to hassle the OBF over this now - it might easier to
just encourage Bazaar to deal with a password (as I'm sure lots of
open source projects have a simple password like this).
