At any rate, CVSNT was obviously not written based on > documentation, it was ported from Unix CVS. > Try: Client/Server protocol specification: http://www.loria.fr/~molli/cvs/doc/cvsclient_5.html RCS file format: http://www.nmt.edu/tcc/swinv/rcs/5.7/man/rcsfile.5.html cvsnt will stick to these documents, and will (as far as possible) maintain a command line interface that applications can call that looks identical to unix cvs. As long as Unix cvs can talk to cvsnt and vice-versa then that's a good level of compatibility. Trying to cope with all the quirks of 3rd party implementations would rapidly become a nightmare. If you can find somewhere that cvsnt breaks this then I'll happily fix it...
