I have gone to meetups asking this question, asked on IRC, and tried stuff on my own, without success. Maybe Drupalchix can help.
In essence, I need to be able to routinely grep all Drupal 5 contributed modules. So, naturally, I wanted to download them all (because I haven't found another way to grep them all).
The following command unfortunately gets me a slew of things with info files containing "core = 6.x"
cvs -z6 -d:pserver:anonymous:email@example.com:/cvs/drupal-contrib checkout -d DRUPAL-5 contributions
I do get a nice DRUPAL-5 subdirectory with the above command, but the contents seem to actually be drupal 6 code.
Can anyone help me with task?
I understand it may be generally frowned upon to download all of contrib, but I do need to be able to grep all of Drupal 5 contributed modules for my current project. Some bandwidth will be saved if I do it right the first time, rather than running a number of commands that get me the wrong results.
