I install 
apt-get install rancid

I add the groups I need in the rancid.conf

I change from cvs to svn

i run rancid-cvs

I added the alias need to email = postfix MTA

what I need to know,

using the apt-get install rancid is correct way?  

I am can get the configs from routers, switches (cisco only for now) with clogin -c 'write term" -autoenable  ipaddress > location

HP switches I cannot.

Just make sure I have the correct distro.

Thanks again for any insight.
