Hmm, when I add a shell-script with executable flag set in a v1.11.1p1
Unix CVS-server and check that file out again (of course in a different
directory), it  it still has the executable-flag.

I did not test with other versions, but CVSNT is based on that version or not ?

I understand, that it is not so easy to implement such a feature.
(maybe with an additional ".attrib"-file or something similar at the server-side - invisible from the client) ?
But I'm sure you'll find a method how to implement it :-)

How is this stuff transported from the server to the client ?
How does a client CVS-command know how to create a file ?

with regards,
