Hello Tony,

  I have a small problem concerning codepage translation:

  1. CVSNT servers on unix try to run in UTF-8 if the system supports
  2. If one moves a repository from WIN32 or cvshome server, the
     codepage of the server has to be overwritten, or the repository
     has to be converted.
  3. If one overwrites the servers codepage via /etc/cvsnt/PServer
     clients running on the same machine as the server also get this
     codepage forced.

  Is there a tool for converting a repository to the new codepage?
  Can the client on the same machine get its regular codepage (switch
  off the overwriting)?

Best regards,
 Richard                          mailto:richard at wirthware.de
