You just read the raw database files from the /cvs repository,
instead of extracting the latest versions of files with cvs,
as described in the collaboration page, as you should have.
It looks like you're not using Linux (why?), but there must exist
a CVS client for Windows, too. Now you go and find it;
the only windows client I can recommend is LOADLIN.
