  | 3.7. Is there a public CVS server for Erlang?
  | 
  | The Jungerl is a public CVS server which provides access to more than
  | fifty Erlang contributions, including an SSH client and the Erlang
  | wiki.
  | 
  | Apart from the Jungerl, there is a score of Erlang-based projects on
  | sourceforge.
  | 
  | The source to the VM and OTP libraries is currently not available from
  | a public CVS server. Since full source is freely downloadable, it
  | would be feasible for someone to maintain such a server and keep it in
  | sync with official releases from the OTP group. So far, nobody has
  | felt their need for CVS was large enough to justify the amount of work
  | required. The OTP group does not provide such a server because they
  | use clearcase for version control. Marrying clearcase with CVS is
  | not easy.

You run diff against whatever version you changed. And then you post
the patch on erlang-questions or erlang-bugs, the former in the case
of new development, the latter in the case of fixes. And then you
wait with the patience of a saint.
