Both of these features are optional and are not enabled by default. If you do enable them, then the repository files will indeed become incompatible. > Or is there a "mode" where CVSNT uses a format compatible with > "plain" CVS? AFAIHU, as long as you steer clear of using format-critical CVSNT-specific features like the two above you should be able to go back to CVS without too many problems (if any). I guess a list of features/options that would result in repository incompatibility would be useful. Anyone cares to compile something like that for the Wiki? Hope this helps. -- Oliver ---- ------------------ JID: ogiesen at jabber.org ICQ: 18777742 (http://wwp.icq.com/18777742)
