FWIW, I don't think there has been any checkins since the last source zip for 2.1.8 was made. So, I'd just use that. You can check for changes via the CVS web browser if you want.
Another possible problem is that if you're trying to use Eclipse, it's CVS client will try to list ALL the modules in the java.net repository. This can take HOURS and may be the cause of the problem. Try doing the pull via a command line cvs client that can jump straight to the jforum code module without having to deal with all the other stuff. [originally posted on jforum.net by monroe]

Apparently it was a bug on the cvs server, it worked today. [originally posted on jforum.net by pala]
