How far are the hotels from the eclipse summintOctober 11-12 2006 in Esslingen/Stuttgart Germany?

I'm about to register for the The eclipse summit 2006 October 11-12 in Germany. On the web page there are 4 hotels suggested, but no clue how far they are away from the actual summit (are they in walking distance?). The summit seems to be at Ebershaldenstraße 12, 73728 Esslingen, Germany. I called all of them to ask for the price for the eclipse summit. The hotels all seem to be in the 100 Euro category. I think breakfast is included in all cases.

How to quickly add a new repository location to CVS...

The eclipse Add a new CVS Repository dialog allows you to quickly fill the form, if you drop a string like into the Host: field. If you see a string like
cvs login 
at sourceforge, grab the highlighted part (including the colon before pserver)...

You can also select a location in the CVS Repositories view and "Copy to Clipboard" and send it to someone. The receiver can then drop it into the Add a new CVS Repository.
