[Bioperl-l] checkout_all fails on biodata

I'm doing:

cvs -d:ext:sendu at dev.open-bio.org:/home/repository/bioperl co bioperl_all

to check out all the bioperl packages at once. However it only checks 
out core, db, pedigree, pipeline and run before failing on biodata:

cvs checkout: Updating biodata
cvs checkout: failed to create lock directory for 
(/home/repository/bioperl/biodata/#cvs.lock): Permission denied
cvs checkout: failed to obtain dir lock in repository 
cvs [checkout aborted]: read lock failed - giving up

This failure is consistent for me (had it multiple times, different 
days, never worked).

Biodata isn't even mentioned as a possible package at 
http://bioperl.org/wiki/Using_CVS. What is it? Could it be moved to the 
end of the alias list so it is checked out last, letting all the other 
packages be checked out before failure?

PS. neither biodata nor pipeline are mentioned as a package on that wiki 
page or at http://bioperl.org/wiki/Category:BioPerl_Packages. Are there 
yet more packages?
