Default Cannot update with CVS

I want to follow the -stable tree on 4.5
Here is what I did so far:

# export CVSROOT=anoncvs@anoncvs1.usa.openbsd.org:/cvs
# cvs -d$CVSROOT checkout -rOPENBSD_4_5 -P src xenocara

/* then it asked me to accept the trusted key or whatever it said */

cvs [server aborted]: expand-modules with no arguments
cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if any)
It's just a fresh install of 4.5-Release

The export command sets the CVSROOT enviroment variable. So once set, you do not need the -d option at all, the cvs(1) command will use CVSROOT if the variable is defined.

The default connection type is ssh(1), so your first time you connect you will see the RSA fingerprint of the server, which is 49:67:9a:46:62:8a:3f:4e:b3:63:ca:d6:41:29:2a:2f, as described in www.openbsd.org/anoncvs.html. You are prompted to confirm that this is the intended host.

As for the actual errors you received, please try a different mirror.

Okay, trying different mirrors worked. The first several on the CVS list wouldn't work at all until like the 3rd one I tried

Nominally unrelated, but undeadly has an article on switching CVS servers. When needing to update from a different CVS server, knowing the following can save some time:
