Surely the problem is in Windows NT, and *that* needs to be patched, rather than CVSNT? I just did a quick test on XP (with the Microsoft DST patch installed), and my CVSNT server there is converting times correctly. I think (following a quick glance at my somewhat-out-of-date CVS sources) that CVSNT just uses localtime and friends to convert between local and universal time. Those are implemented in the MSVC7 runtime. I don't know whether the MSVC7 library authors used an independent time conversion implementation, or used Windows APIs such as SystemTimeToTzSpecificLocalTime. (MSVC's localtime is subject to _tzset, which suggests the former; but even if MSVC7 uses its own implementation, it may still rely on the system timezone database, wherever that is in Windows.) At any rate, I suspect your quarrel is with Microsoft. Or, perhaps, with Ed Markey and Fred Upton. -- Michael Wojcik Principal Software Systems Developer, Micro Focus
