Sorry for the not-quite-Python-related question, but where do I checkout
syncmail on SF if I want to use it like so from CVSROOT/loginfo:

    DEFAULT $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/syncmail %{sVv} largefiles-checkins@lists.sourceforge.net

In the "getting email from CVS" page it says:

    After you've handled the checkout a working copy of syncmail into the
    repository, you need to modify your CVSROOT/loginfo file to tell CVS to
    invoke syncmail for all the interesting events CVS is willing to tell us

I poked around all the SF docs that looked obvious without any luck.  I also
ssh'd into shell.sf.net and largefiles.sf.net but found no
/cvsroot/largefiles directory on either. I posted a SF support request a few
hours ago, but haven't heard anything from them.  From the looks of the
number of support requests open, I anticipate a lengthy wait.

Where am I supposed to checkout a working copy of syncmail?  I presume it
has to be on a SF machine somewhere, but I've been unable to figure out
