[LLVMdev] Could not access CVS for llvm

I tried to access the latest LLVM, since several messages here so far have
referred me to it.  Now I have no experience with CVS-over-the-net.  My
previous experiences with versoin control have been RCS and Monotone.

Brief summary:

hendrik at lovesong:~/dv$ mkdir llvm
hendrik at lovesong:~/dv$ cd llvm
hendrik at lovesong:~/dv/llvm$ cvs -d :pserver:anon at llvm.org:/var/cvs/llvm login
Logging in to :pserver:anon at llvm.org:2401/var/cvs/llvm
CVS password:
cvs login: warning: failed to open /farhome/hendrik/.cvspass for reading: No such file or directory
hendrik at lovesong:~/dv/llvm$

So hitting return at the password prompt, as instructed at
does not appear to work.  Maybe cvs has changed its UI?
