He may have been hoping to download a packaged tarball, rather than having to get them via CVS.

Apparently only release builds are available as a tarball unfortunately (unless there has been a recent unannounced change to this policy).

Would this work for getting the 3.0a1 source code:

cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs-mirror.mozilla.org:/cvsroot co mozilla/browser/config/mozconfig

Or do I need a specific branch:

cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs-mirror.mozilla.org:/cvsroot co -r BRANCH mozilla/client.mk

And what is the branch for Firefox 3.0a1.

why is that? I prefer to use tarball's also, and spent quite a bit of time searching for them...as you pointed out with out any luck.

3.0a1 is on the trunk, no branch. You don't need the "-r" switch for cvs for it.
2.0a1 is on MOZILLA_1_8_BRANCH, 1.5.0.x on MOZILLA_1_8_0_BRANCH.

Because the only common use case for needing the source for a non-release build is that you're doing ongoing tree development. Nightly source might not even compile, and would take up a collossal amount of disk space on the ftp servers.

there is a tarball, it doesnt contain the firefox specific stuff anyway, so you still need to do a cvs checkout.

http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/ ... est-trunk/

doesnt look like its been updated since 23rd feb, not sure if that intentional or not.
