Thank you for your answer,

Yes; Because cvs didn't work, I tried with patch.exe (gnuwin) to merge
this file, but maybe I made an error.
I tried somehow: patch idle.py idlesyntax.10Jul05.diff; some file
were updated, some not and at the end of the output of the console,
there was an error message; cannot remember exactly what.

I think, it is the firewall, who blocks this:
Maybe the module or the protocol isn't ok

In C:\Python24\Lib\idlelib: "C:\Programme\TortoiseCVS\cvs.exe" "checkout" "-P" "idlelib"
CVSROOT=:pserver:anonymous at cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/python

cvs.exe [checkout aborted]: connect to cvs.sourceforge.net:2401 failed: 
Ein Verbindungsversuch ist fehlgeschlagen, da die Gegenstelle nach einer bestimmten Zeitspanne nicht ordnungsgemäß reagiert hat, 
	oder die hergestellte Verbindung war fehlerhaft, da der verbundene Host nicht reagiert hat. 

Error, CVS operation failed

PS: the background is:
I want to enhance the wxPython shell pycrust and 
look or use something from idle code ... ;)

I know, there is the old problem of reinventing the wheel,
but I don't like tkinter, and pycrust has a few nice features
additionally (the graphical namespace viewer for example, display of locals and 
the possibility to integrate it into other programs like spe or pythoncard).
