Default Location for CVSup supfile.

I checked /usr/local/etc/supfile but there is no such file as what written in "man cvsup" page.
Please help.

According to the following, it may be saved as cvs-supfile:

You should familiarize yourself with the information found at this link.

You may also want to consider using net/csup rather than cvsup, csup is fully compatible with cvsup but written in C, so no more need for ezm3, which takes quite some time to build and takes up diskspace...

... or you even use anoncvs as is described here:

http://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq5.html#Bld

and here:

http://www.openbsd.org/anoncvs.html

You don't have to install anything, just put some "export CVSROOT=<choose a server from http://www.openbsd.org/anoncvs.html#CVSROOT>" in your .profile, log out, log in again, and there you go.

CVS is for developers who need to checkin stuff, but users should use c(v)sup because it takes up much less resources on the server.

I use cvsync, as I keep a local repository. I'm not a developer, but I often examine source from different development points, and local CVS is handy for that.
