I've been trying to see if I could make some patches to help improve CVS 2.5.04 Build 3236.  I figured starting from a known functional point would be a good place to start.  So I downloaded CVS 2.5.04 Build 3236 from the marche-hare.com 
website and 
installed it on my server.  Everything works fine.

In the 
meantime, I have downloaded the sources for CVS tagged 
which I assume is the tag that is associated with the 
above build.  However, 
when I build the project in Visual Studio 2003 in 
Release Mode, the cvs.exe 
file that is produced is of smaller size than the 
one that is currently 
installed.  After some more investigation, it seems as 
though MarchHare 
signs all the files prior to making them publicly 

Is there 
any way to recompile the cvs executable, replace the original one 
with it, 
with signing it with the March Hare keys?

Otherwise, how do I proceed in 
modifying it so that I can use it?  How do I test out my changes?  Is there a way to disable signature validation?
