I'm trying to configure Bo Berglund's CVSMailer, and trying to use the
group features he documents. I've added a file CVSROOT/group, and added
the group file to checkoutlist. But CVSNT updates the admin databases, I
get the following:

cvs server: Rebuilding administrative file database
cvs server: 'group' not valid in checkoutlist - skipping

Why is CVSNT skipping the group file? It has no problems checking out
the users file.

Output of 'cvs version':
Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382
Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.02 (Servalan) Build 2088
