We've been using CVS for a few years now, but we're beginning to think about
something else.

SVN is too big a mindset jump for us. But CVSNT looks to provide some
facilities we're after, while at the same providing a compatible environment
that we're all used to.

In particular, efficient binary file storage and file renaming are the two
main things we're after the moment.

Our current CVS repository is on a Mac OS X Server, and all our software
development (up until a few months ago) has been on Macs. Recently, we've
been using Visual Studio for development and WinCVS to manage config control
(to the same CVS repository).

At the moment, all I'm looking for is advice on how to transfer our
repository from CVS to CVSNT, pitfalls to consider, etc.

(Am I right in thinking this is a one way trip - once we're up and running
with CVSNT, there's no going back to plain CVS?)

Thanks for any help.
