I have recently been working with the author of vaj2cvs (an tool for
integrating the Visual Age for Java product with a cvs repository). The
vaj2cvs client is running on a Windows2000 platform and the cvs repository
is set up using cvsnt also on a Windows2000 platform. The default
installation of vaj2cvs failed because of what now appears to be a cvsnt

The issue is related to the mod-time parameter. Vaj2cvs is configured to
identify the mod-time field as an "Valid_response" attribute. When a
subsequent checkout or update request is sent to cvsnt the conversation
appears to work correctly, except the updated or checkedout files are not
returned to the client. "mod-time" is the first response expected so it
appears that the mod-time functions are failing and causing the rest of the
file transfer to be aborted. If the mod-time attribute is removed from the
"Valid_response" list cvsnt performs as expected.

My (extremely limited) understanding of the cvs specification is that cvsnt
should return a valid response even if the mod-time attribute is not

Has anyone else run into mod-time issues with cvsnt?
