Wrong list.
This list is about the CVSNT *server* and not about the 
WinCvs GUI frontend to CVS.
Furthermore WinCvs version numbers do not look like the 
one you have stated, they are in the form etc.

For your information WinCvs is a Windows *application* and 
will not run at all in a Linux machine.

Maybe you are referring to the CVSNT server that WinCvs has
been connecting to????

I do not think it is possible to backport a CVSNT repository
to GNU CVS because GNU CVS does not support many of the new
features introduced by CVSNT.

However, why should you even consider installing *GNU* CVS on
a Linux machine????

CVSNT *server* runs also on Linux machines, just install the
latest CVSNT versionm for Linux and then move the repository
files over to that machine and you are ready to go.

Notice that the CVSNT developer maintans his CVSNT sources in a
CVSNT server installed on a Linux machine!!!

Best regards,

Bo Berglund

Subject: [cvsnt] WinCVS migration questions

Hi All,
I would like to ask a few questions regarding migrating WinCVS (version
2.0.51d) from Windows 2003 platform to CVS (version 1.12.) Debian 3.1R2
1. What is best way to approach this migration?
2. Will there be any incompatiblity problems with this migration? Will
developers still be able to use their WinCVS to connect to the linux
