The problem with being frank is that you stand the chance of looking
uninformed if you didn't do some basic research.

That's the web representation of the Cygwin CVS tree. If you don't know
how to translate that into a cvs command you shouldn't bother.

cygwin.com == sourceware.org == gcc.gnu.org. You're looking at the
top-level (mostly unused these days) CVS repo for sourceware.org. That
contains the Cygwin CVS repository but it isn't the right way to get
the information for checking out Cygwin.
Instructions on how to check out the source are available at the cygwin web
site, just like they are at every open source site. Go to the cygwin web
page and look to the left. You'll see "Contributing" and "Source in CVS".
Both lead you to instructions. "Contributing" is intended to help with
providing patches. "Source in CVS" is obvious.
Yes, I know. Git is better than CVS.
