cvs -d :ext:FOO@cvs.gkernel.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/gkernel co ext3

The branches being used are

cvs up -r ext3-1_0-branch # HEAD of ext3 development
cvs up -r features-branch # For htree, ACLs etc

and there are a couple of other branches I use for tracking merges into
Linus's and the -ac trees. The htree stuff is all that's new in the
features-branch right now.

Cheers,
Stephen
