we're thinking about migration our Linux-based GNU CVS servers to CVSNT. 
As I understood it, the repository format conversion should be fully 
automatic and "on-demand" on a per-file basis. But I have some other 
questions that I do not see addressed in the FAQ or Wiki:

- When running a CVSNT server on a CVSNT-format repository, will GNU CVS 
clients still operate fully functional on the server? (This is because 
we will not manage to get everyone to use a CVSNT client instead of the 
GNU CVS client immediately.)

- The Wiki page at http://www.cvsnt.org/wiki/CvsntAdvantages still 
states "Full versioned rename" to be experimental, but the page was last 
updated in late 2004. What's the status of "Full versioned rename" now?
