CVSNT is a fork of what we call the "vanilla" (i.e. original) CVS hosted at cvshome.org . CVSNT is developed independently by Tony Hoyle and without any strictly defined goal to maintain backwards-compatibility with "vanilla" CVS for all eternity (although it always has been so far). AFAIK there is a CVS client for windows from http://www.cvshome.org and that's what your quotes are referring to but as you quoted it's a client only. CVSNT started out as a port of the _complete_ CVS codebase (i.e. client and server) to Windows. Recently it has been ported back to *ix, so CVSNT isn't even Windows-only anymore even though the name might still imply so. You could think of it as an advanced version of CVS. If you take a look at the last-modified dates on most of the docs at cvshome you'll see that most of them are pretty out of date. Back then there really was no serious alternative for Windows. > a bit confusing, at least for my. Furthermore I asked same question to > "webmaster at cvshome.org", who didn't even reply! Both things (your confusion and the lack of response from cvshome) might clear up once you understand the difference between the two projects and their history.
