Hello all,

Previously, I had been using CVS-1.11.18 patched by
CVSACL-1.2.2 for nearly one year. Recently, I had
discovered some problem in the ACL path. 

I report the issue to the original author of the
patch. However, it seems that ACL path project is not
being active for more that a year.

CVSACL-1.2.2 to CVSNT? Had anyone successfully done
that before? I do not have chance to try it out yet.
Would like to ask for your comment before I do so.

Thank you.
