Error location: current version of C_USER.PDF, pag. 16.
The argument of the function print_name is 'the_object'. However, the function's body does refer to 'id'. Suggestion: change 'the_object' to 'id'.

void print_name(rtems_id id)

AFAICT, there are 2 issues interacting:

a) a bug/defect in cvsweb.cgi

I just filed a bug on this to RH's bugzilla:

b) cvsweb.cgi doesn't support pserver authentication, but only supports 
direct cvs-repository access.

I.e. to allow cgiweb.cgi to "cvs export" tarballs (this is what it 
actually does during tarball creation), you need to tweak file/directory 
permissions in such a way that the user running cgiweb.cgi (user: 
apache) has direct read-only access to the files below /usr1/CVS and 
read-write access to the directories below /usr1/CVS.
