I just did a few ordinary client tests (i.e. checkouts and updates from
a few remote repositories) with the unofficial(?) CVSNT
(RC4) and it seems that after each command I tried so far, my desktop
firewall is alerting me that cvs.exe is attempting to contact an
external server on port 80. The server it has been trying to contact so
far was (*.reverse.theplanet.com). Surely this is not

Furthermore, a regular update (no -d option) on the CVSNT repository,
got me the complete module though I was far from wanting all that...
(or is there an "up -d" in the server's cvsrc?)

Another strange thing upon getting stuff from the CVSNT repository was
that WinCvs is now showing me strange sticky directory tags like ":1.2"
and "CVSNT_2_5_02_2057:1.1". Are these just symptoms of the new
directory versioning support?
