I'm suspect you've noticed we've been having some issued with cvs.zope.org. 
It's been getting hammered with requests for viewcvs.cgi. Last night we 
blocked Googlebot which represented the vast majority of requests.

We just got hit again from which resolves to an Amazon EC node 
(domU-12-31-34-00-03-E2.usma2.compute.amazonaws.com). Could someone be 
attempting to mirror via HTTP and inadvertently glomming the cvs views?

If there's any ideas who this might be or what they're doing, please let me
