I've been running the CVSNT client now for a while against a CVS-pserver running "plain" CVS. If I switch to using CVSNT as my server (still on Linux), will I be able to later switch back (for whatever reason), or is the file format used by CVSNT so different as to be incompatible with "plain" CVS ? I have tried to find any info on this on the cvsnt.org site, but failed. On the /CvsntAdvantages page I noticed the following points: - Efficient storage of binary files using binary deltas. - Even more efficient storage using compressed deltas (when space is more important than performance). This makes me believe that the formats are indeed incompatible. Is that really the case ? Or is there a "mode" where CVSNT uses a format compatible with "plain" CVS? I would appreciate very much if someone could give me a pointer to authoritative info on this archive file format issue. /Johan Holmberg
