cvs.eclass is the only scm eclass which ignores ESCM_OFFLINE
(bzr.eclass, git.eclass, mercurial.eclass, subversion.eclass all do).
In addition, ECVS_OFFLINE has a slightly different syntax than the other
offline variables (EBZR_OFFLINE, EGIT_OFFLINE, EHG_OFFLINE, ESVN_OFFLINE):
While the others are active if they are just nonempty,
ECVS_OFFLINE only becomes active if it is "1".
Both issues can be solved simultaneously by modifying one line.

Thanks for your proposed patch -- assigning to the eclass maintainer.
should be all set now ... thanks
