Since several weeks the public CVS repository on Sourceforge.net is not being synchronised with the developers repository. This means that the public repository conains a very old snapshot of the driver.
For downloading the latest snapshpot it is recommended (even when public CVS is back up again) to download the nightly tarballs from the rt2x00.serialmonkey.com website.
What's the ETA for CVS being back up and more or less current?
Well CVS downfall this week happened during their upgrade of their hardware. They estimated that at the end of this week all hardware is upgraded which should also mean that the syncing between developers CVS and public CVS will be started again.
Everything should be happy again now.
well cvs has been running smoothly for 2 months now, so there is no rush on makng such a switch.
But we are considering this, but that would happen when we switch website server to the new provider.
