cvs checkout question

I'm trying to check out the current Python (read only) via anonymous cvs
as per the instructions on the "Development Tools" page
<http://python.org/dev/tools.html> and it's failing

% cvs -dserver:(E-Mail Removed):/cvsroot/python
login (all one one line)
(Logging in to http://www.velocityreviews.com/forums/(E-Mail Removed))
CVS password:

but regardless of what password I try I get one of two messages:

cvs [login aborted]: authorization failed: server
cvs.python.sourceforge.net rejected access

or

cvs [login aborted]: recv() from server cvs.python.sourceforge.net:
Connection reset by peer

I have a sourceforge account, so I also tried logging in as me and that
didn't work any better. Any hints? I'm on a MacOS X machine in case that
matters, but I have checked stuff out from other cvs servers.

This is a symptom of high load on sourceforge's servers. You are doing
everything correctly, but are being denied access anyway. If you are
persistent, you should be able to sneak in when the load drops sufficiently.

You should leave the password empty.

In that case, SF has rejected you because it is overloaded. Just retry
immediately.

Thanks for the helpful replies! I did eventually get in and got what
looked like most of the files (including the two I really cared about).
It eventually hung and after about an hour of nothing happening I killed
it.
