Hello World,

I've created a Debian package for Debian GNU/Linux unstable from the 
latest CVSNT source tarball. It can be found here:


The cvslockd is started at boot time, PServer.examples and 
Plugins.examples are copied to /etc/cvsnt/ and the following man pages 
are available: cvsnt(1), cvsnt(5), cvslockd(1), PServer(5)

* cvslockd uses 100% CPU time if ZeroConf is enabled (Disable it in 
* cvsnt.1 is just a copy from the original cvs.1
* Three libraries from cvsnt are installed in /usr/lib, but do not (yet) 
comply with Debian standard

* Fix the problem with the libraries
* Update cvsnt.1
* Fix cvslockd 100% CPU time problem
* Make package dependent on Debian Howl package as soon as Howl is fixed 
in Debian

If you find bugs, please let me know.

vengeance. The house of the unbelievers shall be razed and they shall be
scorched to the earth. Their tags shall blink until the end of days.
