Yes, CVSup can be automated in batch mode. Carefully study the CVSup page for more information.

However to be complete, manually updating a local CVS tree isn't much more complicated.
With cvsup actually just automate the whole process ?
Building the entire system is not trivial, & you are not the first to ask on these forums whether the entire build process can be automated. Before attempting to write a script which attempts to do everything, I would highly recommend that you be very familiar with manually building the system first.
  • When you encounter errors in developing an automation script, you will need to be able to identify the root cause. If you don't have any experience building manually, it will be difficult to understand what is the fundamental problem. Until you have developed such experience, you may have to resort to re-installation.
  • Be sure to back up all important files before building.
