Nimbus is part of dev.globus
To gain committer status and rights to the CVS repository, you need to be accepted into the project (via voting) and join the dev.globus community.
Nimbus used to be known as "Virtual Workspaces" or the "Workspace Service" (which is just one Nimbus component). This is why the dev.globus Virtual Workspaces page is named like that.
"Virtual Workspaces is an effort undergoing incubation at Globus. Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful Globus projects. While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by Globus."
