[Biojava-l] broken anon-cvs now up and running

Anonymous CVS is working now. The files containing the local cvs usernames
and read-only restriction mappings had been deleted when I manually updated 
of the anon repositories.

I've confirmed that I can now checkout 'bioperl-live' and 'biojava-live' 
anonymously. Drop me a line if anyone continues to have any troubles.

Sorry about that!
