Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

The GNU client will NOT operate on the repository, this is always the
task of
the CVSNT server. So no matter what the client is the same cvs.exe
(cvsnt) will
access the repository files. Therefore you don't have to worry (about

I am assuming that you are hiding the repository files themselves from
all external
accesses via file shares and the like. Noone except the CVSNT service
should be
able to go directly to the repository files!

Subject: [cvsnt] GNU CVS client use with CVSNT repos


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?
