Hi there,

First time email so the usual apologies if I've simply failed to do my 
research properly.

I've been given a RHEL 3 box running CVSNT 2.0.58d installed via the RPM 
which was available at the time.  This box has been operating with no admin 
for quite a while and I've been tasked with bringing it up to date, at least 
with regard to the software on it (we'll be replacing it with a RHEL 5 
install at some point).  Part of the updating therefore involves CVNST.

I note that there's a cvsnt- RPM available.  Is there a changelog 
for what's gone on since the version we currently have installed, and does 
it contain any gotchas which would preclude me simply doing an "rpm -Uvh" 
with the new version?

I assume a restart of xinetd would be in order given it appears we're 
running it in PServer mode with most users using the Eclipse plugin or 
WinCVS to connect.

Thanks for any information you can give me.
