In the opera Channel there are 3 files named Root :

":Pserver;username=hokkaido-builder;password=chalub12;hostname=cvs.intern.opera.no:/var/cvs/cvsroot"

im pretty sure it's developer CVS accounts for managing source code control.

The other day I was browsing the Opera files and found a file named "Copy of ..."! Beside it was the real file! Guess they use Windows to do their Opera browser for the wii.

It's a dev cvs file. Nothing new, found it about 4 months ago. Emailed Opera about it and they never got back to me, so either the password is changed or its only internally accessible.

Oh and forbore, there is a UNIX style root in it, so while the machines that the code is written on are Windows based, it seems that their automated builder bot runs on a POSIX compliant system, most likely a linux, possibly a BSD derivative.

EDIT: As it is an internal build bot it would make no sense to make it available outside their internal network, especially for security reasons. So I would presume it poses no threat at all.
