Hello Tony,

thanks again for the information, but:

Huh? I thought the CVSNT RCS-wrappers are intended to be a replacement
for the plain old RCS tools, because they cannot work with the
extended contents CVSNT uses? This is why I want to switch to the
wrappers in the first place...

Okay, this is another point I missed. Thank you for the hint.

I'm looking ahead in merging all the version control services in our
department into one single machine. But until then I have to stay in
the grown structure using a Win2k-Server with CVSNT + a Linux server
running Bugzilla and ViewVC. I think it will all be more easy when
running a single Linux box...
