Hello I have a couple of  dev questions about CVSNT & how I would go about 
contributing back to the CVSNT community.

We had started our project 3 months before we knew about audit logging & 
that the default history file wouldn't help very much. Also it took about 
that long before TortoiseCVS suttported the bugid options (It was only 
available in the unstable builds).

Because of all of the above, those of us who used the command line have 
bugids associated with their checkins & those who only used Tortoise didn't 
(for most of their checkins before using unstable build which supported 

This meant at a minimum I needed to get the comment for every file in our 
tree. For this purpose I created a Python 2.4.1 build 247 (ActiveState Corp) 
project to scan a folder tree countaining our project's RCS files. This 
produces a tab delimitered text file which could be imported into a database 
to use its search capabilities.

This file contains the folowing which I thought relevant
    Cvs filename    /DmeDoc/AddressBook/AB.ico
    Full filename    C:\DME_CVS-NT\DmeDoc\AddressBook\AB.ico,v
    Filename        AB.ico

1.    Where would I put this project so others who would like this 
capability can get access to it?
2.    Does the CVSNT source tree contain any RCS files which it uses to test 
against? I found around 15 files which had enough differences to stop my 

Cheers All, Keep up the great product.
